Mineralogy: The term "Jade" is used to describe durable stone used across many cultures to make carvings and tools. Jade as we know it is not one specific type of mineral. It is identified by two categories being Jadeite and Nephrite. Although they look very similar they have their own unique chemistry makeup. Nephrite is a magnesium-rich amphibole composed of actinolite and tremolite minerals. Jadeite is aluminum-rich pyroxene. They are both formed through metamorphism.
Metaphysical and Energy Healing Properties: Jade is said to be a stone that can help you attain your goals and dreams, instill resourcefulness, and allow you to see past self-imposed limitations and manifest your ideas into the physical world. Jade, considered a very lucky stone, facilitates peace and harmony between the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of one's life. When all of these aspects operate in harmony and balance, goals become easier to reach. It is said to promote courage, compassion, justice, generosity, humility, wealth and longevity, to lead a richer more fulfilling life.
