About the stone:
Jade or “yu” (meaning precious stone) as it is called in China, refers to a fine-grained, mineral aggregate composed of highly inter-grown, interlocking crystals of Jadeite and/or Nephrite. It was long believed for centuries that Jade was but one gemstone. In 1863 that changed and the two types of jade were recognized.
Jadeite is found in Myanmar, Guatemala, Japan and the US, whereas Nephrite is found in Central Asia, Russia, Canada, Mexico and the US among others.
It is said that in Chinese tradition, Jade symbolized all five virtues of humanity: Wisdom, Compassion, Justice, Modesty and Courage, therefore often symbols of these virtues were carved into pieces of Jade.
