Jade has been found in history for nearly 6,000 years. Primitive people in the British Isles used jade as a favored stone for axe heads, knives and weapons. Indigenous tribes of Mexico, Central and South America, and New Zealand carved jade into deity masks and ritual artifacts, even cast it into wells as an offering to the water spirits for fresh and plentiful water. Jade has been the most highly esteemed stone in China throughout recorded history, and was valued for its beauty and powers of healing and protection. The Chinese also believed that since jade objects endured so long they were linked to immortality. Jade was said to bring good luck, benevolence, purity and enhanced intelligence.
