Stone Color: Jade comes in many colors including green, white, orange, yellow, lavender, grey and black, but green is the most common and well known.

Stone Origin: Jade has been treasured since the dawn of history in Eastern Asia and South America, where large deposits of Jade are located. In China and Japan, as well as in the Aztec language, the words for “Jade” and “precious stone” are identical. In Eastern Asia, jade has much of the same allure that diamonds do in the West. There is a saying in China, “Gold has a price, but jade is priceless”. In the West, green jade is highly valued, but in China, the most desirable form of jade is actually white and known as Mutton Fat Jade. In fact the metals for the 2008 Summer Olympics that were held in Bejing China contained jade. The gold, silver and bronze medals included a ring of jade on the back. Silver and bronze medals had green jade embedded in them, while the gold medals contained white jade.

Jade stone dating back between 8000-9000 BC have been found made into prehistoric ax-heads, hammers, carving implements, and other sharp tools. Additionally, many ancient cultures made statues and charms from jade, because it was easy to carve and polish.

According to one Chinese legend, Jade is the petrified tears of dragons who cried whenever China was conquered by invaders. Another legend indicates that Jade is the concentrated essence of "true love" . As a result, Jade is traditionally often given to newlyweds, and is thought to assure the quick lineage succession with the birth of an heir. Jade was also thought to have protective qualities as jade amulets were gifted to newborn babies in Asia to protect them from childhood diseases.

Among the Chinese royalty and nobility, Jade’s allure was even more evident. Confucius himself was closely linked to Jade. According to legend, Confucius' birth was announced by a unicorn who gave his mother a Jade tablet, proclaiming that he would be the greatest of all philosophers. Later in life, Confucius wrote about the “eleven virtues of Jade,” which corresponded with the ethical behavior of the feudal upper class.

In Central America, the Mayans and Aztecs regarded jade highly and the name "jade" originates from the Spanish "piedra de ijada", meaning "stone for the pain in the side". It was named in this way after Spanish explorers saw natives holding jade stone to their sides, believing that it would cure whatever ailed them.
