Jade is a highly recognizable gemstone known around the world for its beautiful green color. However, Jade comes in every color under the sun. They can be semi translucent or opaque and are often referred to as having a soapy texture on the surface. Most Jades on the market are actually a form of Nephrite (creamy and opaque) but the more rare versions are a form of Jadeite (more translucent), both are a metamorphic stone form deep beneath the crust. People often associate these stones with East and Southeast Asian culture but overlook the huge impact they had in Mesoamerican cultures. Either way Jades are beautiful stones that can be pretty easily sourced depending on the variety.
Metaphysical properties: For centuries Jades have been used across the world as stones of protection and luck. It is known to help express deeper emotions and is a great stone to pair with the Heart chakra. Jade brings about a sense of tranquility and can encourage self awareness to help you become the person you are meant to be. Each different color of Jade will have more specific metaphysical properties depending on the energy that color brings to the piece.
