Humans have always loved the gemstones and precious metals since a long time.May it be the small diamonds that adorn their places on a simple ring or huge necklaces with thousands of small and big pearls all laced together, each piece of jewelry has a following.It has been stated as an asset of sorts since thousands of years.Kings and Queens used to adorn their own jewels upon their bodies with pride just like we all do even today.Since then looking at the gold prices recently, the value has just increased in the frequent years.
There are many different kinds of jewels and gems of various colors and sizes and features available through the crust of the earth.One of the most assorted and special gemstone is the Jade.It has held a very special regard for itself over the years due to its beauty.The word Jade comes from a Spanish word ‘piedra de ijada’ which means to be ‘loin stone’.This is because this stone was majorly used to cure the ailments of loins and kidneys in the previous times and thus was regarded a precious piece of stone.This stone is mostly used in ornaments.
Nephrite and Jadeite are the two metamorphic rocks which have been assigned these names.These two types of rocks are the premature forms of the Jadestone and are found mostly in the green colour.This is why in many countries it is also known as the ‘greenstone’.The other colors that the greenstone is found in include light blue, pink, white, creamy and sometimes even yellow.It being available in so many vibrant colors is thus one of the primary choices for being used in the making of expensive jewelry or sculptures of Gods and Goddesses.
The Jade is held in very high esteem in the Chinese culture and a number of dragon sculptures and art are carved out of the Jade stone.The stone has been used to its fullest and in the best way possible by the Chinese people.When used for sculpting, carving or in any ornaments, the Jade is treated in many different ways before being finally used.Burma, Guatemala and Canada are the primary and main sources of the Nephrite and Jadeite in the world.
Jade has been considered to be one of the prized and special gemstones in the history of precious gems and continues to be so.May the greenstone never cease to be!
