Jade symbolizes tranquility and wisdom, and in China it was once believed to impart immortality. It is also said to reflect “nine of the highest attainments of humanity,” which are be- nevolence, knowledge, righteousness, virtuous action, purity, endurance, ingenuousness, moral conduct, and music.
Wear or carry a piece of jade to attract love, guard against accidents, increase the amount of your wealth, preserve good health, or hasten the body’s natural healing process. To prevent bad dreams from disturbing your sleep, wear jade to bed or sleep with a piece of jade beneath your pillow.
As a healing stone, the jade is reputed to stimulate healthy hair, soothe the skin, dissolve kid- ney stones, and treat disorders associated with the heart, hips, bladder, and spleen.
