PROPERTIES: Attracting good luck, promoting gratitude, protecting, changing attitudes to money and abundance, releasing negative thoughts
Jade has been highly prized in the East for centuries and is known as the ultimate attractor of good luck and enduring friendship and as a symbol of purity and serenity. Wearing Jade maintains inner peace during difficult times and this stone signifies wisdom gathered in tranquillity. Jade is associated with the heart chakra and increases love and nurturing and brings harmony. It is a protective stone, shielding from harm. Linking into universal abundance, Jade helps change attitudes to money issues, promoting valuing, and gratitude for, what you have, and finding inner rather than outer riches. Releasing ingrained core beliefs, Jade helps you be self-sufficient and recognise that you already have all need and to see yourself as a spiritual being on a human journey. Jade stabilizes the personality and integrates the mind with the body. It releases negative thoughts, especially irritability, soothes the mind and promotes self-sufficiency. It stimulates ideas and makes tasks seem less complex so that they can be acted upon immediately. Jade is a ‘Dream stone’, bringing insightful dreams when placed on the forehead,

HEALING: Jade is a cleansing stone, aiding the body’s filtration and elimination organs. It treats the kidneys and suprarenal glands, removes toxins, rebinds cellular and skeletal systems, and heals stitches. It assists fertility and childbirth, works on the hips and spleen, balances the fluids within the body and the water-salt-acid-alkaline ratio. Jadeite and Nephrite have the same healing properties but colours have specific attributes.
