Jade Gemstones

Did you know that two different gem materials can correctly be called jade? The gemstone jade is a generic term for both jadeite and nephrite. Both stones are made up of tiny interlocking mineral crystals. Jadeite comes in a wide variety of shades of green, yellow, reddish orange, lavender, white, grey, black, and brown. The coloration is often streaked or mottled, giving jadeite gemstones a unique visual texture. This allows jewelers and carvers to create imaginative and intriguing designs with the gemstone. Similarly, nephrite is usually streaked or mottled; however, colors are more muted than jadeite. Colors range from translucent to opaque and include light to dark green, yellow, brown, black, gray, or white. Most people associate jade with green gemstones- this is because green jade is the most common. Green jade is considered to be a “dream stone,” releasing negative thoughts and irritability while soothing the mind. Every other color of jade also holds a different meaning:

  • Black Jade- emanates strong, protective energies to ward off physical and psychological threats
  • Blue Jade- calms the mind and encourages peace and reflection
  • Brown Jade- is a ground stone, providing comfort and reliability
  • Lavender/Purple Jade- encourages mirth and happiness while alleviating emotional hurt
  • Orange Jade- brings positivity and joy
  • Red Jade- dispels fear that holds one back and urges one to action
  • White Jade- filters distractions and aids in decision making
  • Yellow Jade- cheerful and energetic
Jade is the birthstone for the month of March. Since ancient times these dazzling gemstones have been known to represent power and knowledge. While jade is widely used for figurines of animals and Buddhas, it is also used in gorgeous pieces of jewelry like bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings.
