♦ GEMSTONE STORY
Jadeite is one of two forms of jade. This beautiful gem is loved in jewelry for its striking green color, but jadeite gemstones were actually originally used thousands of years ago as weapons. Jade’s toughness made it ideal for carving into ax heads and tools as well as ritual artifacts. It didn’t take long before ancient civilizations noticed jadeite not only for its durability, but also its beauty and potential metaphysical capabilities. Central American cultures would sometimes hold jadeite against their sides to help cure ailments, which is why the Spanish called jadeite “piedra de ijada,” meaning “stone for the pain in the side.” On the other side of the world, the Chinese called jade “yu,” meaning “heavenly” or “imperial” and has been found in the tombs of some Shang dynasty kings and other important figures. Lady Fu Hao’s tomb contained 755 jade objects!
The Chinese especially valued jadeite and have used the gemstone for multiple purposes. First, jadeite gems are said to possess health-strengthening abilities and improve longevity. Jadeite bangle bracelets are said to protect the wearer and absorb negative energy. According to feng shui, jadeite can influence not only health, but prosperity. Considered a “dream stone” by ancient cultures, jade is used today to dream solve, access the spiritual realm and encourage creativity.
There is more than one type of jade, but only two pure jades: nephrite and jadeite. Jadeite is the more uncommon of the two and has therefore been considered more valuable with a more vitreous luster. Jadeite is a sodium-rich pyroxene mineral that is formed by fine-grained interlocking crystals in metamorphic rocks under high pressure, but low temperatures. Pure jadeite is actually white, but the prized green hue is a result of chromium impurities. High-grade emerald-green jadeite is commonly called “Imperial Jade” and is quite rare. Burma is the main source of jadeite, including Imperial Jade. Other sources include Japan, Canada, Guatemala, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkey, Cuba and the United States.
