"Jade" is a cultural term used for a very durable material that has been fashioned into tools, sculptures, jewellery, gemstone, and other objects for over 5,000 years. It was first used to manufacture axe heads, weapons, and tools for scraping and hammering because of its toughness.
Then, because some specimens had a beautiful colour and could be polished to a brilliant lustre, people started to use jade for gemstones, talismans, and ornamental objects. Although most people who think of jade imagine a beautiful green gemstone, the material occurs in a wide variety of colours that include green, white, lavender, yellow, blue, black, red, orange, and grey.
Originally, all jade objects were thought to be made from the same material. However, in 1863 a Frenchman, Alexis Damour, discovered that the material known as "jade" could be divided into two different minerals: jadeite and nephrite.
Because these two materials can be difficult to distinguish, and because the word "jade" is so entrenched in common language, the name "jade" is still widely used across many societies, industries, and academic disciplines.
The vibrations of the jade stone are excellent for building confidence and delivering them all of life's blessings. It was once thought to be a stone of good luck and pleasure. Jade is a generous stone that brings wealth and good fortune. Jade is commonly worn for good luck, but it may also aid in healing on many levels, including emotional, physical, and spiritual.
