Jade is a collective name for two minerals called jadeite and nephrite. In the economic circuit, fake jade has become popular commodities. You can test whether your Jade is real, but it’ll take a long time. Jade changes color when it’s been in contact with human skin for several years. Jade is available in many colors: green, brown, black and white.
In China, jade has been used for thousands of years, and is only considered valuable when it is polished. Unpolished jade is worth far less. Jade is seen as a stone that wards of any negative energies. It symbolizes leadership, grandeur, distinction and greatness. Jade is associated with the water element.
Jade attunes itself with the Heart Chakra. A gift of jade is said to bring along abundance, health and luck. If you believe in karma, gifting jade to someone else could grant you the same benefits. In magick, the stone is used for stabilizing emotions, abundance and psychic dreaming.
*Never ingest any crystal or stone. Skin contact with the stone is okay as long as you are not allergic to the stone.
