Jade Meaning and Healing Properties

Introduction to Jade

There are two main types of jade: nephrite (actinite) and jade (pyroxene). The English name of nephrite comes from its function of healing the kidney. Nephrite is not a very hard mineral, but it is very tough and difficult to crack. Compared with nephrite jade, polished jadeite is relatively more granular with slight bumps.

The world’s respect for jade is very extensive, and its sense of identity in different cultures is also quite consistent. The role of its original origin is also roughly similar. Jade is widely regarded as a kind of stone with healing function, and has a special relationship with various ancestral spirits and protection of the dead.

There are many colors of jade. For example, there are bright blue jade in California, and the jade can also change color. Usually, the jade will gradually turn brown after being buried with the dead.
