Today we're going to go over this mezmerizing, yet truly healing stones and all its numerous everyday uses!


Jade has been mined in China since the Stone Age. In prehistoric sites, jade artifacts include simple ornaments with bead, button, and tubular shapes. It was also used for tools and weapons. Jade later became revered with special significance. Beautiful designs were used for carvings, decorations, ceremonies, furnishings, and jewelry for the Imperial families.
By 3,000 BC, jade became known as “yu” or the “royal gem”.
Xu Shen, from the Han Dynasty.

The most wealthy and influential members of society would be buried in jade suits. Extremely costly and taking years to assemble, the thread used to join the pieces of jade would be gold, silver, copper, silk, or other materials depending on the status of the person buried.
The gemstone’s significance to Chinese culture cannot be understated. Entire kingdoms in China have started wars over particularly precious stones.

Gold has a price; jade is priceless (Chinese proverb)

Physical Properties of Jade

There are two distinctive types of Jade which have different mineral compositions.

The two types of Jade are in fact Nephrite and Jadeite. The latter is rich in aluminum and is a pyroxene, and the former is a magnesium-rich amphibole.

Only trained observers can distinguish between the two compositions, using a “chime” test as the specimens make different sounds when struck. To the untrained eye the two stones have very similar physical properties.

Jade stone benefits

Jade is believed to have several benefits, including increasing fortune, grounding, and enhancing maturity in relationships.

Jade stone is sometimes referred to as the lucky stone or the happiness stone. Both types of jade stone have long been associated with attracting good luck.

It’s also believed that jade stone has healing properties. These are predominantly green stones but do present in many other colors, such as lemon and lilac. Green is associated with bringing tranquility and calm to difficult situations.
