Description

Jade is an ornamental rock, mostly known for its green varieties. Jade’s toughness made it ideal for carving into ax heads and tools as well as ritual artifacts.The Chinese called jade “yu,” meaning “heavenly” or “imperial” and has been valued for centuries since Shang dynasty. In Spanish, it’s called jadeite “piedra de ijada,” meaning “stone for the pain in the side.” Europeans believed Jade to cure kidney stones if it was rubbed against the side of the afflicted person’s body.
