Jade - Jadeite

Jade is an ancient stone dating back in the Chinese civilisation to 5,000 BC. It is loved by the Chinese not only for it,Äôs beauty and durability but for it,Äôs cultural significance and is as loved and treasured today as it has been throughout the history of China.

In China jade represents Virtue, Purity, Intelligence, Loyalty and Justice. Internally jade may be flawed but these interior flaws are believed to represent sincerity.

Chinese say... “Gold has a value.... Jade is invaluable”.

Throughout time jade, because of it toughness and durability has had a wide variety of use from articles of adornment, household utensils to weapons such as axes and daggers.

There are two types of jade, Jadeite and Nephrite. Jadeite is a pyroxene with a chemical formula of Na(Al,Fe+++)Si2O6.
