Jade Gemstone Meaning and Metaphysical Properties

Updated on December 23, 2013

Jade - a Gemstone of Peaceful Healing and Balance

Jade gemstone is believed to be able to instill peace, wisdom and balance. Jade's spiritual properties are very pronounced. This ancient token of peace and calm is an extraordinarily strong tool which can help us bring our consciousness to a higher level. But the way jade accomplishes this is subtle and unassuming. Due to its phenomenal general efficiency, Jade is often classified together with diamond, which is one of the most versatile stones.

Since ancient times Jade was considered a stone of power, royalty and nobility, especially in the East. It was believed to be an incarnation of the universal principles. It corresponds to the vibrations of Planet Neptune, and therefore many individuals born in those astrological signs where the water element plays an important role, are especially attracted to this gemstone.

Jade is a stone of balance and healing; it eases anxiety and helps in alleviating emotions based on fear. This gemstone is one of the few stones that can never hurt or bring negative influences on the individual who wears it. Jade stones never absorb any type negative vibration from the environment. These gems can protect us from negative influences by constantly emitting calming, cleansing vibrations. Jade is capable of establishing closer connections between the various levels of our intellectual body, thus increasing our mental capacity. The ancient civilizations of the East have been aware of its healing attributes for centuries.

Jade and the Horoscope

Jade consists of two minerals mutually interpenetrating within its bulky crystal structure. Those are jadeite and nephrite. The best specimens of jadeite tend toward transparency, but they are rarely fully transparent. The best jade specimens are filled with latent power and beauty.

  • The pale tones of cream and white jade are beneficial for the astrological signs of Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn.
  • the pinkish and lilac nuances are best for Libra, Taurus and Sagittarius.
  • The deep green shades attract Scorpio, Aquarius, Pisces, and Gemini.
  • The yellow and brown colors of jade are reserved for Leo and Aries.

Very much like pink amethyst, or amethyst in general, If you put your favorite jade stones under the pillow, not only will you recall your dreams in the morning, but you will be able to understand their meaning too.

The unique qualities of jade has enabled creating art sculptures of unsurpassed beauty. In China, a lot of statues of the goddess Kuan Yin are made of jade. Kuan Yin is a goddess of mercy and compassion, a protector of motherhood and little children. Her wondrous jade statues protect against negative energies and can be used to purify the space in your home.

Jade Metaphysical Meanings - a Gift from Heaven

According to the legends of ancient China, the jade gemstone can be observed as a crystallized moonlight which has descended to our world from the tops of the most holly of mountains. If you have wondered how to purify jade gemstone from negative vibrations, this stone, which indeed is a true gift from heaven, needs no purification at all. It always stays clear and undisturbed, emitting its gentle, soothing vibrations towards us and our working or living space.

Jade is ideal for internal silence meditation. Take a piece of jade in your hands and listen to what it would like to say to you. Depending on how you hold this gemstone during the meditation, you can check whether you are silent listener or not. The process of real listening means carefully focusing your attention and very gentle holding the jade stone in your hand, enabling its revealing to us, instead of trying to abuse it. Very often thy way you treat the stone, is similar to the way you treat other people and situation. This can be a nice meditation for beginners and by doing it properly, your jade gemstone can help you discover some aspect of your own being you ware not aware of at the first place.

At the end, a word of caution regarding jade. If you plan on buying jade gemstones, either as loose stones or in form of jewelry, your jewelry supplier should be reliable. There are a lot of jade simulants out there, for example aventurine, or serpentine, just to mention a few. Watch the video above on identifying fake jade.

I hope you have realized that Jade is a wondrous gemstone, not only when used in jewelry, but also when used in healing, meditation, and spiritual growth.

      I am not surprised to learn that also the Celtic civilization had a similar understanding of the properties of jade stones. We are still trying to understand all the aspects and influences of stones and minerals on our lives and our environment. Obviously, in the past, people were more connected with Nature and therefore more aware of the features of the stones, if not intellectually, then on an intuitive level.

      Interesting hub. A friend of mine who studies the ancient Celtic ways has also said that jade, green jade in particular, is thought to attract money or profitability. Interesting concept.3
