Jade gemstone is one of the healing stones that has been used extensively in the past, especially in the ancient Eastern civilizations. This stone is therefore equally an ancient decorative mineral as it is a modern therapeutic tool. Jades are stones of peace and calm and can be extraordinary helpers and silent companions which are able to delicately promote their beneficial energies to help advance human consciousness to higher levels. Due to their excellent general effectiveness, jade stones stand side by side with diamonds which are known as the most efficient gemstones of all. Owing to the widespread beliefs identifying jade as incarnation of the universal cosmic principles, jade has been treated as royal stone in many different cultures.

beautiful jade pendant Jade is one of the few crystal healing crystals that are unable to hurt you in any respect if you wear it or use it regularly. We own this to the amazing ability of this stone not to absorb any negative vibration from the surrounding space. Instead, jade stones are known to be able to protect you from all the negative vibrations that could possibly find their way to your biological energy field. These stones will constantly irradiate their calming and cleansing vibration strengthening your auric energy. Jade is capable of establishing strong bonds between the different layers of your mental body and thus enhancing your intellectual potential. The Eastern civilizations of the more or less distant past have been conscious of its attributes, but unfortunately quite a few important facts and information regarding crystal healing using jade was lost with the arrival of our materialistic money oriented society.

Meaning, metaphysical, and healing with jade

Jade responds to the subtle vibrations of planet Neptune. Therefore many souls born in the water signs of the horoscope are especially strongly attracted to this gemstone. Jade stone affects the feelings and emotions indirectly, but the resulting effect is nevertheless pretty strong since the penetrating ability of this wondrous green stone is persistent and long-lasting even though it is slow.

In principle, jade is a stone composed of two different minerals from the same mineral family--- jadeite and nephrite --- that can be found together in the same gemstone but need not to. In terms of crystal healing they both have similar interactions but with subtle differences.

If you want to purchase jade for use in crystal therapy, a few words of caution should be said. Very often different types of stones and crystals are offered as jade, being neither jadeite nor nephrite. Almost as a rule many green stones are promoted as jade; for more information look here. Make sure you purchase either jadeite or nephrite no matter what the marketing

The best jades lean toward transparency, and such specimens can have fantastic beauty and strength. Remember that like with all the metaphysical healing stones, the strength of the crystals depends great deal on its purity, in other words, transparency. The colors of jade can vary considerably, starting from the pale cream white or yellow of nephrite, via the various shades of deep or light green, up to red or even pink. This is one of the crystals suitable for all the signs in the horoscope, and every individual can choose the color of its liking and preference.

Cleansing and Jade Meditation

In China many statues of goddess Quan Yin are made of jade. Quan Yin is goddess of mercy and compassion. She as the protector of children and motherhood, is very much adored by the women of Asia. Her jade statues are believed to repel negative energies, especially after heavy domestic fights, disputes and misunderstandings. Recently, a huge Buddha statue was made from a large, gem-quality Jade stone. In any case, jade is considered one of the most precious stones in Chinese mythology, as valuable as gold in our society.

Jade belongs to the group of few rare stones and crystals that need not cleansing from the influence of other people's energy fields. It always remains clean and calm, spreading its beneficial vibrations all around the space. Still, from time to time purification, either with water, or using other stones is advisable.

Jade is a perfect gemstone for inner peace meditation. Inner calmness is necessary if we want to be able to listen to other people's communications. If we are restless within, if we have a constant inner dialog, we will not be able to properly understand what it is that other humans want to convey to us.

In order to practice this meditation, take a peace of jade in your hands. Listen to what this mineral has to tell us. Just be there and listen to it. Do not try to extract anything from it. We need to learn how to listen by carefully holding the stone and letting it reveal its secrets to us. That is the way you should approach other people as well.


Abhishek says:

hi i just bought a 7cr jade stone i don't like rings so can u advice me how should i use this stone to get proper energies from it thanks abhishek

sunnyray says:

Although jade is believed not to store negative vibrations, I would suggest that you follow the normal procedure of crystal cleansing and charging. If you still don't like your jade ring after the purification, your energy field is likely not compatible with jade's energy at present. Just put it away for some time and wait until you feel attracted to it anew.

star says:

I Love Jade Stone. Im Taurus. I prefer it rather than green quartz. or Emeralds

stone says:

hi i m born in 04/12/86(sagi) i was asked to wear emerald(mercury). do jade have any effect for a ring and pendant?

rayslab says:

Hi Sunny...I would appreciate if you could advice whether this method of crystal cleansing and charging works the same for Jade?


sunnyray says:

Jade, at least in principle, is one of the stones that requires no special cleansing. If you insist on cleansing it, you can rinse it in water for a couple of minutes. You can charge it with active or passive energy, or any other particular type of energy that best suits your intentions. Sorry for being so vague, but it really comes to using your own ideas, thoughts, feelings and intentions when working with your metaphysical crystals.

Dilee says:

Hi sunny,

I just went to see a feng shui master today and he told me that the reason my luck has been so bad was because I have an evil spirit following me for some time. He did a cleansing for me and ask me to not wear my jade bracelet again because it attracts and traps evil energy and that's is also the cause of all my body aches. Could that be true? I've been wearing it for about 13 years and I've only heard that it wards off evil, can it have a different effect in different situations? I'm really confuse now!

sunny says:

Hi Dilee,
If in doubt, you can cleanse your jade bracelet by rinsing it under running water and by smudging it with incense or smoke from sage sticks. Alternatively, you can use the cleansing powers of the fire and earth element. Then you should charge your bracelet in the sunlight and project your best thoughts and wishes into it. Jade, by itself, neither attracts nor traps evil energy, so there is no reason why you shouldn't wear it. However it is always possible that people, consciously or unconsciously, project negative energies into some crystals or stones.

christopher says:

Dilee, I m no expert but maybe its possible you have a piece of jade, that has the spirit of its previous owner attatched to it? Maybe they were a negative person. If it is indeed not a newly created piece.

christopher says:

Are there any reliable sources on the internet with information on the different colors of jade, what they represent in terms of energy, healing and chakras? And anywhere online I can find great deals on jadeite and nephrite? I do not have much money :(

thank you sunny for sharing your knowledge.


sunny says:

Hi Christopher,
thanks for your comments. I am not aware of any such informational sources. Maybe someone reading this page will be able to answer you questions.

christopher says:

And any reputable sources online when buying jadeite and nephrite?

sunny says:

Hi Christopher,
I would have said, but even there one should be really careful when purchasing jadeite and nephrite. Today, there is too much fake jade being marketed as genuine jade, and especially so on the internet.

anonymous says:
01-12-2013 seems to have real nephrite. i got a ring from there and i like it alot

sunny says:

That's a good resource Anon. Thanks for sharing.

gina says:

I want to know the effects of kwan yin pendant.

Jade says:

Hi my name is jade but I have been advised to wear rubies, does jade have more of an effect than birthstones?

cali says:

Hi hi,

I am wondering if it is okay to wear the jade and use other crystals during meditation.


sunnyray says:

Cali, jade is actually one of the best crystals for meditation. You can also combine it with many other stones and crystals.

Larry says:

My wife has owned two jade necklaces (worn against her skin). With both necklaces the jade broke and fell off. Why did the jade seem to explode?

sunnyray says:

Other than some mistake in the manufacturing of the necklaces, there is nothing inherent to jade that would cause this behaviour.

JadeChakra says:

I have two jade stones; one as a bracelet and the other as a Buddha necklace. Now, I read that gemstones have chakra from which they derive energy from certain parts of the body. I read that it can aid in the healing of heart and disgestive problems. IS THIS TRUE?

sunnyray says:

Hi JadeChakra,
Jade is usually associated with the fourth, hearth chakra. The list of stones that belong to this chakra can be found here. Now, when it comes to healing, people have always used stones to heal various conditions, but please be aware that this is not an exact science. The action of the stones is metaphysical, which means that we are dealing with our subtle energy fields and auras. Furthermore, the usage of stones requires your conscious cooperation, for example in order to focus these subtle energies through the stone matrix to the various energy streams and subtle aura. Thus, more often than not, just wearing various crystals and stones will not be enough to get any result from them.

lilly says:

Hi, um I want to buy a piece of jade, but I dont know what size to buy. Does the size of the crystal affect the energy of it?

sunnyray says:

Dear lilly,
It's not so much the size that matters, as it is the quality of the Jade stone. There are many fake Jades out there. I would make sure first and foremost that I am purchasing real, genuine Jade.

Zainselle says:

Hi Sunnyray,
I don't have any JADE jewelries yet, but I would love to get one soon. However, I just need your advise as to what Jade jewelry I should get (earrings, pendant, bracelet, or ring). Thank you and more power to you!

sunnyray says:

Dear Zainselle
It doesn't really matter what Jade jewelry you wear, as long as it is genuine. Also, if I have the choice, whenever I purchase pendants I choose stones that are without holes. With love and light, sunny.

Ryan J says:

We get asked the same questions about jade over and over so put together this handy FAQ for people looking at jade:

Let us know what you think.

Zainselle says:

Hi Sunny, Thanks so much for the info. I have a Tiger Eye bracelet, Turquoise ring, and Citrine drop earrings and I happen to wear them everyday. Would wearing all of these stones at once contradict each of their healing properties? Because I am looking forward to purchasing a JADE pendant and my main concern with wearing all of these stones at once, is if they would contradict each others' powers. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

sunny says:

As far as my personal experience with those stones goes, they all go along just fine. Blessings, sunny.

Zainselle says:

Hi Sunny, Thanks so much for your answer. Your website is wonderful! I have a Tiger Eye bracelet, Turquoise ring, and Citrine drop earrings and I happen to wear them everyday. Would wearing all of these stones at once contradict each of their healing properties? Because I am looking forward to purchasing a JADE pendant, and my main concern with wearing all of these stones at once is if they would contradict each other's powers. I am also a Pisces. Thank you in advance. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Gerald Pauley says:

Hi, I don't know where you obtained your information about Australian Jade. Australia has one of the largest deposits of Nephrite Jade in the world and it certainly is not serpentine.

sunny says:

Hi Gerald,
Thanks for the comment. You are right of course. That info was never intended to say that Australia has no genuine jade, just to point out some of the tricks that unscrupulous salesperson sometimes use. I will correct the statement above, as it indeed may lead to misunderstanding and provide a link to the source of information.

Stella says:

For the people who wanted to know the meanings and uses of various colors of jade, you'll find that and a lot of other information here:

Jade is very commonly treated with harsh chemicals, polymers and dyes. It can be difficult to detect when the piece is new, but treated jade doesn't hold up well. Additionally, some of it can actually be harmful. It's best to purchase jade from someone who offers a 100% money back guarantee that their jade is untreated - I get mine here:

And I've never heard of jade attracting harmful spirits or bad luck. If someone told me that, I'd consult another feng shui master for a second opinion. ;)

Stella says:

Larry - re: your wife's necklaces, jade can develop internal cracks from hitting against things, and from overheating. You might not notice them but they grow and the piece will break in time, seemingly for "no reason". Jade is hard and durable, but it's best to be a little careful of it, try not to hit it, don't bake it in the sun. Jade likes to be hydrated, too - if it starts looking dull, leave it in a glass of spring water overnight or just make a habit of keeping it on when you bathe.

The lore is that jade will "take a hit" for its owner. So by that logic, when her pieces broke, they were protecting her from something.

sunny says:

Thanks Stella. That was incredibly useful.

Miguel says:

Hey Sunny, I have a jade beaded necklace that I love the calming energy but sometimes it feels irritating on the back of my neck when I wear it even after cleansing it and I'm thinking it of turning it into a couple of bracelets.Do you think it's more beneficial to wear on the neck or wrist? left or right wrist? thanks.

sunny says:

Hi MIguel
Thanks for the comment. If after some time your Jade necklace starts to feel irritating, you should stop wearing it. It often happens that the energy of the stones we would like to wear constantly becomes too overwhelming after some time. It doesn't matter too much where exactly the stone is positioned. It will work even without touching the skin if within your aura. Many blessings sunny.

Rafath says:


I would like to clarify which stone is best for me to wear. I was born on 23 June 1995. at noon around 1pm

sunny says:

Hi Rafath

I would suggest Aventurine, as your mystical and spiritual birthstone.

Chelsea says:


I was randomly looking in my box of jewelry and came across a bracelet with 6 small jade pieces woven into it. I put it on and felt the urge to leave it on. Three days later... It's odd but I feel like I need to wear it! Is it possible for the energy to have sought me out in a way, knowing I would benefit from it? Also- what's the best stone for a Pisces? Because I am a Pisces, jade is ok to wear all the time, correct? Thank you!

sunny says:

Dear Chelsea

It is quite possible. We may be attracted to some energies on a deeper, subconscious level. As for the best stone for Pisces, Amethyst could be one of the best spiritual stone. And yes, the energy of Jade is so subtle, that it is OK to wear it for as long as you feel comfortable and fine with it. Thanks for the comment and many blessings.

Frances says:

I was born on Oct 10 '70 at 6.15 am.
My boy was born Mar 16 '12 at 9.11 am.
Which stones are best for us to wear?
Many thanks.

sunny says:

Hi Frances. Why don't you visit a mineral shop and see for yourself what stones you are attracted to? That is by far the best way. Other than that, I would suggest Tourmaline for Libra (Oct 10) and Amethyst for Pisces (March 16).


Hi. I wanted to know if what is the myth about jade pendant (heart shape). Here's my story. The pendant broke in half 2 or 3 days before the operation of the one who gave me the pendant. He has undergone heart surgery and he got healed. Is there any meaning on this?? Or just coincidence?

sunny says:

Hi LIONFISH. Thanks for sharing. I strongly believe that there is not even a single thing that happens in our lives without a deeper meaning. There are no coincidences. That said, it is not so easy to understand the meaning of what is happening to us, especially from outside. You are the one who should interpret the meaning. Did it do any beneficial work for you by cracking in half? Could it be that the jade accumulated your worries and concerns regarding the upcoming surgery?

ching canlas says:

Hi Sunny, i'm wearing 3pcs lucky charm bracelets which I personally made. A tigers eye mantra beads, a 21eye and 5bats dzi with citrine gemstone in one bracelet and an all in one bracelet with pi yao, buddha, Ingot, 8, wu lou, I ching coin with some semi precious stone in it. Somebody told me that I should not be wearing a tigers eye because I'm under the fire goat sign. It might eat my luck. Is it true? Am I wearing the right bracelet? Thanks.

sunny says:

Hi ching canlas
Thanks for the comment. I tend to use my personal experience, without too much concern about classical astrology compatibility. So, the main question is how you feel while wearing your charm bracelet. It shouldn't be too hard to determine if it is working for you or not.

Cres says:

Hi there!!
Can you advice me what type of pendant I'm going to wear as lucky charm gem stone. I was born april 1964. I'm considering this key pendant with citrine and diamonds, Would it be good.? Please let me know. Thank you.

jia says:

Hi SUNNY please help ....

Okay this part is very important in regards to my problem with stones please help... " I bought a pair of heels in pakistan TWO years ago...I lost them when I moved back here...I looked online and was told that style was old season. I gave up and just started looking else where for another nice pair.

Now this is what happened I was at "green earth" a well known store and looking at various stones in the shapes of necklaces and bracelets and each one varied with a unique description from good luck to prosperity.

I didn't buy any BUT was attracted to a few and touched them ... I walked out thinking of checking out shoes at a store and I glanced over and found the same pair of heels that I had lost! Same colour, texture, design EVERYTHING! I had a strong feeling it was strong good luck ...

I wasn't sure which stone helped my luck so I went back after a few days and looked over the same stones I was looking that day, I thought maybe if I bought a necklace of one and bracelet of another it would definitely work for good luck...I bought "lucky jade" in necklace and "moon stone" for bracelet...

I sat out side the store and put on Moon stone and was about to wear the Lucky Jade but the Lucky Jade bracelet BROKE...I walked back to the store and as I went in the cashier who was playing with a stone necklace BROKE it and the stone came flying towards my feet...also when she was trying to print my receipt it kept jamming in her.....

My question is ...was it the bad luck of the New moon necklace I was wearing when I tried to wear the Lucky Jade bracelet or was the Lucky Jade cause of the bad luck breaking itself ..... I want that good luck I got the first day!!! Please help.

sunny says:

Hi jia
It is hard to tell anything definite just from the sequence of events you described. There are so many different influences in our lives, and I think what matters most is how you feel about the events that are taking place in your life. I, personally, always try to find what is positive in every situation, no matter how odd or difficult it is. Thanks for the comment. Take care and God bless.
