The Meaning of Jade
In China, where jade is worshiped, the mineral is thought to represent five key virtues: modesty, courage, compassion, wisdom and justice. The ancient Mayans and Azteks would physically apply jade stones to their aches and pains, in an effort to relieve their discomfort.
Jade was also considered as a ‘protective’ stone and it was often gifted to ward off negative energy which could potentially cause an accident or lead to illness. Like a natural mood ring, it was thought that jade reflected the temperament of the wearer, glowing brilliantly when spirits were high and then diminishing in brilliance and dulling when low.
The term jade refers to two separate types of minerals – jadeite and nephrite. Jadeite is available in a wide variety of colors however it is most recognizable and known for its rich green hues. Nephrite is often found in a creamy white or translucent green color. Both types are incredibly tough and durable, in ancient times, they were often used to make tools and weapons.
Jade is revered around the world and is thought to symbolize strength, durability, harmony and balance – all essential and key components to a happy marriage!
