Green Jade is the name shared by two minerals - Nephrite and Jadeite. Though both rocks have different compositions, hardnesses, densities, and crystal structures, both are exceptionally tough stones, similar in appearance, and equally valuable in metaphysical and healing properties.
Jade is known by humanity across the globe for nearly 6,000 years. The primitive peoples in the British Isles, indigenous tribes of Mexico, Central and South America, and New Zealand carved it into masks and ritual artifacts, even cast it into wells to offer the water spirits for fresh and plentiful water. An endless variety of gems, vessels, incense burners, beads, burial items, and statues have been carved from Jade, as well as musical instruments and pendants inscribed with poetry.
Jade is most valued for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate "Dream Stone," revered in ancient cultures and today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve. It is cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and a strong mind, and is considered a powerful stone, an amulet of good luck, love, and friendship.
Jade has been the most highly esteemed stone in China throughout recorded history and was valued for its beauty and healing powers, and protection. The stone is believed to radiate positive energies to protect and generally to strengthen the body.
Jade is also thought to be cooling. This may be why jade pads are very popular in Asian countries. When such a pad is used without electricity in the summertime, its coolness creates a soothing and relaxing environment.
Green and white most valuable types of Jade, may be included in the crystals blend of Ereada® Gemstone mats. It works as an efficient absorber of natural InfraRed heat and passes it along gently and smoothly. Tumbled natural stones or disks are heated to emit deep penetrating FIR (Far InfraRed) rays.
Heated jade also emits negative ions, which help counteract the undesirable positive ionization of the air caused by electronic devices.
Best of all, the unique healing properties of Jade works in combination with the powers of the Amethyst and Tourmaline crystals to achieve synergic effects.
