Emerald green, spinach green and apple green are considered as specific valuable colors of jade. My mom’s favorite is her apple green shade jade earrings that she loves to wear aside from her garnet birthstone.
Jade is traditionally known as a gemstone of unique symbolic energy. It gives a balancing and harmonizing effect, stimulates creativity and mental agility. According to the old folks habitual wearing of this stunning gemstone brings joy, vitality and cheerfulness.
I remember I had an emerald jade ring when I was still a little girl. I can no longer recall if I misplaced it or lost somewhere, as I never took it away from my finger. My mom said I trade it for a toy doll which made her very angry, for what I can only remember is the beauty of the ring. As per our family tradition giving a jade jewelry to a new born baby girl will bring luck as it is also regarded as a symbol of the good, the beautiful and the precious. It also exemplifies the Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty and courage.
