Jade comes in every color of the rainbow. The jade used in ancient Chinese jade pieces is mostly of the “mutton fat” variety. Mutton fat jade is a creamy white with blemishes of light green. These, however, have become rare. These older jades are made up of nephrite. Jade carved nowadays, jadeite, is mostly from Burma and can come in many colors. Pure jade, however, has a white, translucent color. The mineral deposits in the stone is what gives jade its color. Iron compound deposits usually gives a pale green, different browns, different yellows, different grays, black, or blue. Compounds of manganese usually give different grays, different blacks, or pink. And finally compounds of chromium usually produce an emerald green. Colors of jade have special meaning for the Chinese. Yellow can stand for Earth and Saturn. Black can mean water, North, or mercury. White may stand for air, metal, West, or Venus. Red can represent fire, South, or Mars. Green is associated with wood, East, or Jupiter. And finally blue might symbolize Heaven.
The Chinese believed that jade was capable of many great things. An ancient text said that powdered jade, if taken internally, could cure anything from insomnia to flatulence. The Chinese believed that Jade could also convey awesome powers of invisibility and levitation, and carry more practical feats, such as preventing a person from being thrown off his horse. They also believed that jade, if worn, could heal physical ailments and ward off evil, misfortunes, and mischievous supernatural entities. Jade, used properly by a shaman, can also bring about any manner or number of grotesque beings.
Jade is thought to be able to help a person just by being in contact with it. The feel of cool jade is said to elevate and purify thoughts, to quiet the mind, and to induce a state of contemplation. It is also believed that frequent handling of jade will cause the stone to grow even more beautiful in sheen. According to one Chinese proverb, “Jade is cool because it comes from the essence of clear mountain streams.” Science says that jade is cool to the touch because it is a non-conductor.
