Jade has grown alongside and helped nourish mankind for over 6,000 years; whether it was the early folk of the British isles who would use it to create various weapons due to its hardness, or the ancient tribes of Mexico and Central America who would use it to carve into various deities. It has helped us learn during our early civilisation to use what nature has provided and must not be so easily forgotten as we evolve into a technologically based society. Within the family name Jade there are two main classes, Jadite and Nephrite, Nephrite is calcium magnesium silicate, while Jadeite is sodium aluminium silicate. Both variations can have similar appearances and metaphysical properties but can be placed at two very different price points, with Jadeite often being reserved for intricate carvings.
Nephrite Jade carries revitalizing energy, helping to enhance the circumstances of one’s life, whether it be health-related, or those looking for a change of fortune. Nephrite Jade does this by working with the Heart Chakra, helping it open and allowing for good fortune and health to flow into the body. You can use this form of Jade when you’ve been feeling down on your luck, maybe after a bad experience or just finding that you’re generally feeling quite low and stuck. Nephrite Jade is fantastic at transmuting negative energies, helping to not only turn existing negative energies into positive vibrations but helping to ward off any further negative energies from latching onto you.
This form of Jade is often nicknamed the Stone of Fidelity, working with Heart Chakra to balance masculine and feminine energies. This often provides relief and provide benefit to those working through a dysfunctional relationship. Nephrite Jade can also help those who discover that they’ve fallen into a negative pattern in life and help you to rediscover the path you was once on.
