Jade can come in a couple of different forms, nephrite and jadeite. It is a silica-based gemstone with calcium, sodium, or aluminum. It is prized in both Latin American and Asian cultures. Its name is derived from the Latin word "ilia" meaning flanks. Jade has been used for both medicinal, jewelry, and religious purposes for over 5000 years.

Jade stabilizes individuality, personality, and self-sufficiency. Many believe jade to be the best stone for attracting good luck, health, and friendship.
