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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
I Love Jade Stone. Im Taurus. I prefer it rather than green quartz. or Emeralds
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?
Hi Sunny...I would appreciate if you could advice whether this method of crystal cleansing and charging works the same for Jade?
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.
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!
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.

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.
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.
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.
And any reputable sources online when buying jadeite and nephrite?
I would have said Amazon.com, 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.
jademine.com seems to have real nephrite. i got a ring from there and i like it alot
That's a good resource Anon. Thanks for sharing.
I want to know the effects of kwan yin pendant.
Hi my name is jade but I have been advised to wear rubies, does jade have more of an effect than birthstones?
I am wondering if it is okay to wear the jade and use other crystals during meditation.
Cali, jade is actually one of the best crystals for meditation. You can also combine it with many other stones and crystals.
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?
Other than some mistake in the manufacturing of the necklaces, there is nothing inherent to jade that would cause this behaviour.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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!
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.

We get asked the same questions about jade over and over so put together this handy FAQ for people looking at jade: http://www.mountainjade.co.nz/blog/greenstone-necklace-designs-questions-customers-ask-us/
Let us know what you think.
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!
As far as my personal experience with those stones goes, they all go along just fine. Blessings, sunny.
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.
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.
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: http://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/jade
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: https://www.etsy.com/shop/UltimateJadeite?ref=l2-shopheader-name
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. ;)
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.
Thanks Stella. That was incredibly useful.
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.
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.
I would like to clarify which stone is best for me to wear. I was born on 23 June 1995. at noon around 1pm
I would suggest Aventurine, as your mystical and spiritual birthstone.
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!
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.
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?
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?
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?

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
hi mr. sunny.. im wearing jade bracelet in my left hand and citrine bracelet in my right hand. would that be okay? i was born july 2,1986
The most important question here is how you feel while wearing them. Do you have more energy, are you more productive, and so on... If that's OK, the combination works, if not, try to change it for something more efficient.
Hi Sunny, I was born on 1st September 1973. What would be a good stone for me to wear for good luck. Lost my job 6 months ago and not much luck in securing a new one.
Hi I want a jade ring and locket in heart shape.
Hi DC. Your spiritual birthstone is Citrine. I wish you a lot of luck finding a new job. With Love and Light, sunny.
hello mr. sunny..
yah! so far i feel great. but id to ask what specific stone best fit for me? my birth date is july 2,1986. female. thanks ahead!
Have you ever tried Aventurine?
Hi sunny! First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you on your website, since everything is so well explained and easy to understand. My question is that two days ago, my boyfriend bought me a necklace with a jade pendant that I have come to love dearly. Something about the stone just captivated me and spoke to me. Then yesterday, he came to my house with another gift: a rose quartz pendant similar to the one I had when we first met four years ago. I lost it after we met and when I bought another one, I didn't really feel a connection to the crystal and stopped wearing it. Anyway, he asked me which one I liked best and I answered him that I felt a greater connection with the jade crystal. Then he told me that he also thought the jade crystal suited me more than the rose quartz and told me we could save that pendant as a gift to give to our 3 month old daughter when she gets a little older... Now my question is which of the stones is better for our little girl? I read above that jade is the stone of motherhood and family and I read somewhere else that it protects infants, so like any good mother, I would give the jade pendant to my daughter if it will protect her...
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on Jade with us. You are right, Jade is great as a stone of motherhood. But on the other hand, Rose quartz is also great as a stone of the heart. So I think both will suit your intention very well. Take care and God bless!
aventurine? i havent tried it yet, what aventurine brings? oh by the way was that reply is for me?
Yes, I was suggesting Aventurine as a mystical birthstone of your Zodiac sign.
this is a great website, I never knew there were so many things to learn from gems and stones, thanks for maintaining this site!
In summer 2010, in a trip to China, I bought a small dragon-shaped jade pendant and strung it on a necklace. (I didn't buy it from a reputable buyer, more like at a kiosk in a shopping mall. But the jade doesn't scratch, it's transparent with a flashlight, cold to the touch, so I think it's genuine) When I bought it, I was going through a really rough patch in my life. I put it away after for safe-keeping, but after reading more about jade, I took it back out a few months ago. However I didn't feel "lucky" or "protected" with it on. In fact, in November, I wore it for an exam, and it was one of the toughest exams I ever took. So I took it off. I want to wear it, but I feel a lot of fear around it. Now after reading this, and your clean/charge articles, I've decided to run it under warm water for a few minutes, and keep it in the sun tomorrow morning. How long should it be out in the sun?
Is there anything else you think I should do? I don't wanna think too much into my jade necklace, but I also didn't like the doubts I had in my head whenever I wore it (but gotta say, I'm quite anxious all the time anyway) Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. A couple of hours in the sun is enough to charge your stone. If you like, the next step after charging should be programming. You can read more about crystal programming here. I have a couple of crystals that I have with me most of the time, and they are all programmed with a special purpose.
Hi Sunny.... need clarification. Does Jade or any other crystal must in contact with the skin, body or finger to gain the "Power"? Eg. A jade or crystal ring has a gap and not really touches the finger. Thanks for sharing...
No skin contact is necessary to harvest the metaphysical powers of your stones. Just keep it nearby. Thanks for commenting.
I bought a Jade ring from NYC Chinatown.
I live in Dallas-Texas & wore it for few days on my right hand & one night it just disappeared from my hand while I was deep asleep.
I looked for it everywhere but it's gone!
What could be behind this mystery?
Lydia Excell says:
I gave my husband a jade pendant that he wears all the time. I also gave him a jade ring from chinese shop. I ma not really sure if it is genuine jade. After 3 months wearing my husband felt a pain on his left foot and we thought it is a sprain . It is hurting him as he walks and he is limping a bit. I kind of worried. Would it be the effect of this jade that he wears on his left little finger? Or am I just being paranoid? Please enlighten me.
I seriously doubt the Jade ring has anything to do with it. As an aside, there are many fake jades out there, but even a fake jade shouldn't be the cause of pain in his foot.
I have anxiety I was wondering what stone or crystal could help with that? I currently have a green jade choker, 2 rock quartz as necklaces and an amethyst ring. When I wear all these I get a head rush.
Pick just one to start working with. Your stones are fine, but if I may suggest, I would recommend using either Aquamarine, Blue lace agate, or Moonstone. And then, cleanse, charge, and program your selected stone. Programming is especially important to help you with your problem. Thanks for the comment, and God bless.
Hi would like to know what stone or crystal should I wear, I was born May 25,1976, 9am
we have a broken rutile ,quartz, and others ..If its broke is it mean energy gone? if we fixed it does it remain the energy? thank you..more power...
Not quite. You can still use their metaphysical power.
Hi sunny. Today I walk into a crystal shop hoping to buy a crystal to bless me to be a mother. My crystal salesgirl whom I always buy crystal from advice me to buy quan to green Jade pendant . is it OK for me to wear it . I am born on 8 July 1977.
Yes, why not, especially if you feel attracted to.
Hi. Sunny it's me Rina. How are you?. I would like to know if blue lace agAte that I bought is suitable for m or not. I am born on 8 July 1977. I usually get disturbed if my routine pattern every day life not being folloee
Wed. I will get angry and irratitable. Plus I give tuition also. Will this blue lace agate help me to soothe down. Coz I have tried other cyrstal. They helped me in different way but not my. Frustration and anger .
I can't seem to find the answer but what happens if you loose a Jade. I accidentlu lose my Jade rock. There's a lot of it saying that Jade protects you and it takes the fall for you but what if you loose it ? What does that mean?
I bought a "blue jadeite" bangle and then heard that real jade doesn't come in blue. Is that true? It's a teal color.
@Luz, What does it means to you? It's all about your answering that question for yourself. It could be that you no longer need protection. It could be that you've lost protection. It could be that the stone is no more compatible with your aura. It could be any other thing, but it's for you to find out.
@Chrissy, Nope, it is not true. The Jadeite form of Jade can be bluish as well.
Hi sunny. Awesome website. Very helpful
I have a light green jade. I absolutely love it. I normally cleanse my jade on a full moon every month ? Is that correct ? Is there another way to cleanse the jade and the Spririte together ? I like to say my own little prayer as I cleanse.
Glad you like the site and thanks a lot for the support. The way you cleanse your jade is almost perfect, because this stone responds to the energy of the moon very well. Also, you prayer is no less important.

What happens if one side of eight sided white star is broken. Does it still retain energy. Thank you.
Yes, sure, cracked crystals still retain their energy, even though it might be slightly altered.
