Most people think that the Chinese jade is only green yet there are actually other colors. There is actually a more expensive type of Chinese jade that comes in color red, which is very rare. Nephrite jade comes in other shades too such as black, white, gray, green and topaz.

Unlike other stones, jade is very hard to customize. Carving jade requires abrasion tools which is another reason why big statues made of jade are sold at very high costs especially during auctions. To make the process easy, some companies use modern machinery with diamond tips in order to finish more carvings with less time.

Jade represents strength, cleanliness and beauty that is why many Chinese businessmen wear jade jewelry as a reminder of these qualities. It also comes with many health benefits that is why many Chinese health stores sell accessories made of jade to promote healing and maintain the balance of Chi in the body. Bracelets, rings, brooches, necklaces and pendants are some of the common accessories sold in Chinese health stores.

In Feng Shui, jade is also used to attract good vibes that is why many lucky charms are made of jade. Elephants, frogs and Buddha are some of the figurines that are usually found in Feng Shui centers as it brings positive energy thus inviting good luck.

There are many things that are associated with jade especially in Chinese history. The balance of Yin and Yang also called as the good and the evil, bravery, spirituality and other things are all part of jade's colorful past. To know more about facts and stories related to jade, you can read topics about the Neolithic period around 10,000 B.C which is when the earliest jade artifacts were discovered.
