Since jadeite gemstones have a powerful influence on the heart chakra, the wearer of this stone opens his/her heart’s doors to invite love, care, and affection. However, we’ll focus on the healing properties of jade gemstone, and how it positively impacts the well-being of its wearer.
Did You Know?
Not being a traditional birthstone, jade can be used as an alternative birthstone for people born under the zodiac Taurus.
Both the nephrite as well as the jadeite minerals are known as jade gemstones. However, jadeite is stronger and rarer than nephrite. Translucent jadeite gemstones are not only valuable, but also have greater healing properties because of its near-pure nature. It is the almost white jades that are valued the most.
Ancient Chinese prized jade for its durability, purity, color, hardness, and most of all, for its beauty and powers. Jade was used as a protective stone that deflected harm, reduced stress and diseases. It was also believed that the stone blessed a few with immortality and delayed the process of decomposition, if jade ornaments were placed on or near the deceased.
The Chinese term for jade is ‘yu’, wherein jadeite is known as ‘ying yu’ or ‘hard jade’, and nephrite is called ‘ruan yu’ meaning ‘soft jade’. Jade is considered to be the stone of love that rules upon the affairs of the heart and its emotions. It has been used since centuries to attract love into the life of its wearer or believer. In ancient China, this stone was often carved into the form of a butterfly and prayed upon to usher a soulmate into one’s life.
