Chinese Ruyi in Lavender Jade – Natural A Jade Jadeite Pendant – Lotus Flower
In Chinese culture a ruyi (which translates to “everything goes as one wishes”) is a spiritual object or talisman symbolising good fortune. Each family has their own ruyi, an heirloom passed down the generations. It is considered to be “The Wish Granting Jewel” of the family and it stores luck for the moments when the family needs it the most. Ruyi has been credited with helping its owner achieve his or her goals and career by allowing him to gain more power and leadership. Ruyi is a classical feng shui cure used for career advancement, power and authority. The ruyi became a symbol of authority, leadership and power as they were carried in public by famous and powerful Imperial Chinese officials. Today, it can often be found on the desk of people who have an important, powerful or high level position. It became tradition that the nobles, generals and government officials presented the most valuable and elaborate Ru Yi to the emperors. Throughout imperial palaces, ruyi were placed on the top of the desks, on the side of thrones and on beds for emperors’ daily appreciation. Ruyi not only symbolized blessings, but also wealth and power. The ruyi ornament is usually made of jade to enhance the good luck. Though most symbolize clouds or heaven, traditional Chinese culture often combines them with other auspicious motifs. With time passing by, people gradually appreciated the object more from its symbolism, decoration, design and aesthetics.
The lotus represent purity and perfection; it grows out of mud yet it remains pure. It is a reminder to elevate our spiritual consciousness, to be apart of the world but yet remains above it.

Many variations of the lotus can be found in jade carvings; some emphasizing the blossom while other emphasize the seeds. The lotus blossom represents the blooming of ones spiritual journey and achievements. Jade carvings emphasizing the seeds symbolize ones potential in life or that of reproductive abundance. The Chinese associate jade with clarity of mind and purity of spirit. so to carve this into the jade is to reinforce this purity and clarity.

The The Chinese word Yu 玉 literally means “precious” or “treasured” and is used to refer to Jadieite only as 硬玉 (lit. “hard jade”) not nephrite which is only sometime called as 軟玉 (lit. “soft jade”). The english word “Jadeite” is derived from the Spanish phrase “piedra de ijada” which means “stone of the side”. It was believed to cure kidney stones if it was rubbed against the side of the afflicted person’s body. Early Spanish explorers named it after they saw natives holding pieces of the stone to their sides to cure or relieve various aches and pains. In Central America, the Mayans and the Aztecs and other highly developed civilizations prized jadeite jade. They too used it for medicinal purposes as well as for jewelry, ornaments, and religious artifacts. Jadeite also symbolizes prosperity, success, and good luck.

Their carvings invoked the powers of heaven and earth and mystic forces of life and death. Sacred and meaningful carvings in jade have been created for millennia in China. In China it evolved into an artistic tradition that has flourished for more than 3,000 years. It was in China where the jadeite gem-carving tradition reached its peak as an important artistic medium. Chinese master carvers created masterpieces that are still unsurpassed in concept, design, and technical execution. Since the late 1700s, China has been importing jadeite from Burma (now known as Myanmar) by the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century the first attempts were made to record and translate what had become a secret language written in stone. Some of the ancient symbolic motifs still used in modern jade carvings include:
