Known as a stone for health and dreams, green jade is believed to be a link between the physical and spirit world that can also restore the body to optimal health.
Varies in shades of creamy light green, vibrant apple green, and deep forest green. Jade can also come in blue, white, red, lavender, and orange.
Where to Use It
Wildly popular as jewelry, wear a piece of jade as a bracelet or necklace regularly to support a balanced body and mind. Place it against the forehead to recall dreams and display in the family room of your home for good luck.
Where It's Found
Jade comes in two forms: jadeite (harder and more valuable) and nephrite (softer and more common). The hardness of a crystal is based on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, which tests a stone’s ability to be scratched, and is not something you will likely be able to sense with a touch of your hand. Telling the difference between jadeite and nephrite can be very difficult for experts and almost impossible for an average person’s naked eye. Jadeite can be found in Russia, China, and Guatemala, while nephrite is additionally found in New Zealand and the Swiss Alps.
