Which zodiac sign is the jadeite stone suitable for?

The jadeite stone became known to people at the same time as jade. However, historians and modern jewelers note that this mineral is less common in nature, so it has always been valued higher, and products made from it are more expensive. The ancient indigenous peoples of America also knew him – the Mayans, Aztecs. Among them, jadeite was considered a sacred mineral; it was used to make ritual temple objects and jewelry. For a long time, Europeans did not distinguish this mineral from jade. Only in 1836, thanks to a mineralogist from France, Demur jadeite received its own name and was recognized as an independent gemstone.
The name comes from the Spanish expression “piedro de jade”, translated as “kidney mineral”, which speaks of the special healing properties of jadeite. They were noted in Ancient China, and then recognized by Europeans.

What types of jadeite are there?

Green jade. A translucent, fine-grained (this is important!) stone of bright green color is the object of desire of every Chinese. Even pragmatic Europe calls these stones imperials. And in Asia, jadeite is of excellent quality – a good investment. The most expensive imperial is Old mine. It is pure green in color and has good transparency. These are rare, and they are sold only at eastern auctions. Another variety is “flower green.” It differs from Old mine in the unevenness of its coloring: specks, small transitions into halftones, dots of “alien” color. White jade. This color is preferred by young Chinese. It costs less than imperial. According to the degree of transparency, it can be “glass”, “glutinous rice”, “ice”, “white beans”. The more transparent the white jadeite, the more expensive it is. Lavender. Lilac or lavender colored stones are not uncommon. The color is romantic, the color of youth and freshness.
This variety of self-flower is divided into several varieties: “eggplant”, similar in color to a ripe vegetable; there is a pink-lilac variety; “Purple beans” have a blue-purple color. Blue jade. It is not pure blue, with a slight hint of lavender. Black jadeite. In fact, it’s not black, but a very dark green, but it’s better not to take risks. After all, in China, the color black means failure and sadness. Therefore, lovers of imperial luxury did not buy the innocent gem. Yellow (and red) stones are not very popular. But people who have financial problems buy yellow amulets (gold is yellow).
And red ones bring good luck and good health.
Almost everyone can afford jewelry made from these gems.

Magical properties

In China they believe that the main meaning of self-flowering for a person is help in achieving enlightenment. Everyone has heard about Chinese spiritual practices, and in all cases, enlightenment of the spirit is considered the highest level. The magic of the gem reacts sensitively to the well-being and health of the owner. Everything is fine with him – the decoration is bright and shiny. A change in color or fading of the stone can indicate problems in life and health. The main property of the stone is considered to be its “selflessness”. He will give his life for the owner. The Chinese firmly believe that if a bracelet or ring breaks, it means they “gave their life” so that their owner could continue to live.

The meaning of the zodiac signs
