Jade is a highly prized mineral found predominantly in green and white, though some strains are violet, brown, pink, black, and red in colour.
In some regions of Asia, Jade is referred to as the revered “Imperial Gem” – partially for its healing properties as well as its value as a stone used by craftsmen to carve symbolic messages and notions that are important to their culture.
Jade is a purifying stone whose healing properties are claimed to help kidney stone ailments, enhance wisdom, remove toxins, and aid in dissolving trauma.
