Jade - Stone of the week

Before my passion for jewellery grew, I thought Jade was a stone that came from China and was green in colour. I guess that is due to the large significance that Jade has played in the art of the Chinese empire. I have included a picture of these beautifully carved flowers with grapes from the Jin Dynasty (12th-13th century). Whilst watching a well-known shopping channel some years ago, I was surprised to discover that the stone can also be lavender, red, yellow, blue, black, white and green in colour. You see, there are two types of Jade. ‘Jadeite’ is the rarer of the two and is probably the stone that I was seeing on my TV screen, whereas ‘Nephrite’ Jade can be almost a milky colour – right through to deep green. The deeper the green, the more expensive the stone.

Jade is said to symbolise many things:

  • Serenity – helping to release negative thoughts, soothe the mind, and relieve you of unhelpful emotions such as irritation

  • Purity

  • ​​Wisdom that is gathered through tranquillity

  • Associated with the heart chakra

  • Increases love and learning

  • Protective and promotes self-sufficiency. It encourages you to become who you really are

  • Brings harmony to your life, stabilises the personality, and integrates the mind with the body

  • Good luck and friendship

  • Stimulates ideas and is said to be a ‘dream stone’

  • Cleansing qualities

The different colours of Jade have specific attributes as well, so if you are interested in finding out more about black, blue, brown, lavender, red, white, orange or yellow Jade, or simply finding the right piece for you, then please do get in touch.
