Lavender Jade Story:
The Lavender Jade Story: Jade comes in many colours. Lavender jade is uncommon and is become very fashionable. So prices are set to rise. Lavender jade is often reserved for the mature wise women in Chinese culture, and is believed to bestow the energy of inner peace and spiritual awareness. It is directly linked to the crown chakra, the octerine tattwa egg area of manifestation and is often used for higher meditation and balance. Lavender Jade is considered to be very alive and is a teacher of all things.
Chinese culture can be very matriarchal in reality. Like jade, women are considered to have a civilizing effect on men. The amount and quality of jade that a woman wears can display her social standing and how much she is respected and appreciated. It is surprisingly common to see the arms of the woman at the tiller of the junk or the one who is is clearly in control of the market, festooned with bangles of lavender and green.
The chi of the Jade is believed to actively protect the person who wears it. I often receive inquiries from women who are looking for a new special jade piece to replace the jade they usually wear. Time after time they have described their special piece shattering during a serious accident that should have killed them whilst they walk away with hardly a scratch. They believe that they were not injured because the jade piece gave its “life force chi” to wrap them in its strong energy and protect them. In many of these cases the only thing to break was their jade. Another woman told me about being in the hospital with serious cardiac illness and she was not expected to survive. Right at the moment when the doctor and everyone with her thought she was going to breathe her last, suddenly the lavender jade piece she was always wearing, spontaneously broke in several pieces. She immediately started getting well, and recovered. There are so many stories about jade protecting the person who wears it.
Why is Jade Such a Sacred Stone? Jade is intrinsically linked to the rise of Chinese culture and remains an important part of Chinese culture. Each piece’s colour and texture is believed to have a message and contains ancient stories. Skillful and respectful carving can help the stone find its voice and release its inner meaning.
The most common colour of jade is green. The richer the green the more highly prized. Green jade has energy for healing mind and body, calmness, balance and love. Light green is more yin chi, and darker green is more yang energy. Black jade is actually very dark green and is very yang. Skillful jade carvers try to make each great piece include some black jade to balance and ground its energy, but only a small amount of black. It is very good luck to have a splash of black but not too much. Black jade is used by Tai Chi martial artists, and Qigong, to build up the body’s chi. There is a slight amount of black in this piece and it is considered strong energy.
The more rare colors of white, lavender, red, and yellow, often described as “hong”, which are caused by other minerals absorbing into the jade stone. Jade is a natural stone with pores and veins, which allows and moisture and other minerals to seep into itself. This process has allowed the jade to take on its own chi life-force over the millennia and by this process of osmosis it can also share its energy with, and absorb energy from, it human companion. Jade chi helps to balance the body, and the body’s chi flows into the jade. Wearing a jade stimulates acupuncture points and keeps the chi flowing smoothly for health and youthfulness. So when you wear your jade, and know you are wearing a stone that is very personal to your body. If you are healthy and happy, the jade that you wear every day will become more beautiful as you wear it. If you see your jade looking dull or flat, you might want to take extra care of your health. The colour of jade that is worn next to the skin is often reported to change over the years as this energy exchange takes place. Often it lightens from deep green to lighter, then lavender and finally white. This is another reason why lavender jade is so highly prized. as it is believed to be very human and has raised its human’s energy to a rarified place.
Jade is believed to be closely related to the human body, and the jade chi energy and the body’s chi energy flow between each other. Asian people will select a companion piece of jade that they will wear all the time. They will only gift that jade piece to a very special person because they believe that the jade has become part of them and by giving it to a family member or close friend, they are giving a part of themselves. It is considered very lucky to receive a gift of jade. And it’s also very lucky to give a gift of jade. New Year is the best time to give and receive as it is thought to bring good luck for the year, and longer. It is also said to stimulate creativity and mental agility, and enhance one’s health. New Zealand Green Stone or Pounamu, (a form of nephrite, lesser jade,) has a similar role in Māori culture. It is considered a taonga (treasure). Pounamu taonga increase in mana (prestige) as they pass from one generation to another. AS with Chinese Jade cultural pieces, the most prized taonga are those with known histories going back many generations. These are believed to have their own mana and were often given as gifts to seal important agreements. Pounamu only occurs in one shade of deep kaki and has limited translucency.
True Jade is not only beautiful, and translucent but has deep meanings that can enrich your life and balance your body, mind and spirit. Different colors have different types of chi energy:
- Lavender as stated above. White jade has the pure energy and helps develop deep wisdom from within, calms the spirit and develops a deep connection with the universe,.
- Very”Hong” jade, red/orange color, is dynamic and full of energy. It is utilized for protection, safety, success, confidence, courage and happiness
- Yellow jade chi augments happiness, prosperity, and satisfaction in life. The rare creamy yellow, called mutton fat jade, is the most expensive because it augments commerce.
The Rise of Civilization and Jade The spirit of jade is believed to have taken a personal and protective interest in emperor Chin and helped to culture him, unify and civilize his people and his descendants. Confucius believed that Jade has unified its destiny with the betterment of mankind.
“Wise men,” he wrote, “have seen in jade all the best human virtues.
- It is soft, smooth, and shining, like kindness.
- It is hard, fine, and strong, like intelligence. I
- ts edges seem sharp but do not cut, like justice.
- It hangs down to the ground, like humility.
- When struck, it gives a clear, ringing sound, like music.
- The stains in it which are not hidden and add to its beauty, are like truthfulness.
- Its brightness is like heaven,
- While its firm substance, born of the mountains and the waters, is like the earth.
The Classic of Poetry says, ‘When I think of a wise man, he seems like jade.’ That is why wise men love jade.”
Confucius was directly quoting Kwan Chung who had written 2 centuries before, that Jade symbolizes to the Chinese eight of the highest attainments of Man:
- ”In it’s smoothness he recognizes Benevolence,
- In it’s high polish – Knowledge,
- In it’s unbending firmness – Righteousness,
- In it’s modest harmlessness – Virtuous Actions,
- In it’s rarity and spotlessness – Purity,
- In the way it exposes every flaw – Ingenuousness,
- In that it passes from hand to hand without being sullied – Moral Conduct,
- And that when struck it gives forth a sweet note that floats sharply and distinctly to a distance – Music.”
So jade appears to be working behind the scenes for 5 centuries before Chin to cultivate and unify the Chinese people.
Know Your Jade Jadite “Genuine A-grade Jade Jadeite” that is all natural, not enhanced or treated, is known in the trade as “A jade.” Jade jadeite, or “yu” “玉”in Chinese is also known as the “Stone of Heaven”. The Jadeite showing up on market presently can be classified into A jade, B jade and C jade:
A- jade indicates the natural jadeite without undergoing any artificial treatment, alteration or enhancement. Such a kind of natural jadeite does not change with the passage of time. It can be preserved forever and wears well .
B- Jade is defined as the natural jadeite having undergone a process of acid treatment, removed the impurities and impregnated with colloidal silica or resin. Normally, this kind of jadeite will turn out yellow gradually in 5-10 years of time and then the surface color will come off due to the ageing of resin or colloid. Meanwhile, the composition of inherent texture of jadeite has been destroyed during the acid treatment which affects immediately its durability.
