History

Jade benefits from a very prolific and various history. While its wonderful array of colours would make it the ‘royal gem’ of the Chinese empire, as esteemed as gold and diamond were in the Western world at the same time, the pre-Columbians would value more its incredible toughness that would make it more useful than steel. For either one reason or the other, Jade was called to a great destiny.

 

Virtues

Thanks to its magnificent palette of colours and great toughness, Jade is believed to provide its bearers with lucky prosperity. Would every single hue of the stone represent a different seed, be sure you will enjoy a bountiful harvest.
