Jade refers to an ornamental stone mostly known for its varieties of green, although it can range in colour from white to black.
Two types of Jade are known, that being Nephrite Jade and Jadeite.
Jadeite has a hardness of 6.5-7 on mohs scale and is much rarer and pricey to that of nephrite jade. Nephrite Jade has a hardness of 6-6.5 on mohs scale and is one method that gemologists use to identify.

Handmade Jade Pendants To Promote Harmony, Protection, & Infinity
Jade is a semi-precious, crystalline-structured stone that originates from China, Russia, and the United States. This stunning material comes in varying shades of transparent and opaque greens. Lighter, translucent jades boast softer energy, while their deeper counterparts represent a solid determination to overcome adversity.
In some cases, you can also find the stone in shades of white, pink, yellow, brown, and lavender. Many believe finding the stone in more than one colour increases its value.
The Symbolism Behind Jade
In Chinese history, jade was once reserved exclusively for emperors, being favoured above diamonds and gold. Many parents looped small jade Buddhas with red cords around babies’ necks for protection and to put them on the path towards a highly prosperous future.
For centuries, this long-valued gem has become a symbol of harmony. Meanwhile, engraved jade discs stand for infinity and immortality.
Nowadays, you’ll find jade in many different shapes, from butterflies representing the ability to ward off unfortunate events to dragons that embody good luck.
How To Use Your Jade Pendant
While many jade enthusiasts display their Australia pendants in their home to support and strengthen their life force energy, many recommend wearing the stone.
Wearing a jade pendant eliminates unwanted energies and protects the wearer from sickness and injury. You can incorporate your jade pendant into a bangle, wearing it on your left wrist to be closer to your heart.
