Jade is one of the oldest gemstones, with a history dating back over 7,000 years. It is especially prized throughout Chinese and Latin American cultures. The word "nephrite" was derived from the Greek word for kidney, which refers to the belief of nephrite jade's ability to help cure kidney disease. Nephrite is one of two distinct mineral forms classified as jade (the other is jadelite) and up until 1863, nephrite was believed to be one and the same as jadelite.
Nephrite Jade carries a revitalizing energy that is believed to speed up emotional and physical healing. It is a stone of health and abundance, allowing divine energy to enhance the circumstances of life. This specimen is beautiful! The different shades of green and all the specks within this stone are mesmerizing. The stone itself has a smooth finish and on one edge you can see and feel the roughness of where this slab was cut. It's a fun piece to add to anyone's collection.
