Jadeite is the second member of the Jade family, which is a Pyroxene mineral, unlike its Actinolite mineral brother, Nephrite. A more grainy jade, Jadeite is slightly harder than Nephrite, but not as tough. It comes in a variety of colors, the most famous of which is a semi-transparent emerald-green jadeite known as “Imperial Jade”. Jadeite is also found in green (light apple to deep green), lavender, white, pink, red, yellow, black, blue and orange. The majority of this sought-after variety of Jade is found in Myanmar, what was once Burma.
Jadeite is a stone of harmony, bringing cohesiveness to group settings, whether family or business colleagues. It strengthens relationships and helps those recover after loss or separation. Like all Jade, Jadeite is a stone of prosperity and abundance. It will increase a slow business as well as a failing garden. Jadeite is especially helpful for teenagers and children who are shy, lonely or dealing with changing hormones. Use Jade to increase the ability to interpret dreams as well as induce lucid dreaming.
Physically, one can use Jadeite to aide in male reproductive disorders; to repair cells and bones; relieves pain and eases restless leg syndrome, cramps, and “Charlie horses”; increases healing after surgery and helps regulate high blood pressure.
