As early as 3000 B.C., Jade was known in China as 'yu' meaning 'The Royal Gem' preserving its significance throughout the long history of Chinese art and culture, not unlike the impact of gold and diamonds in the West. The Chinese continue to regard jade as a symbol of 'The Good, the Beautiful, and the Precious' which embodies the Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty, and courage. Jade is a fascinating gemstone with a great range of colors encompassing not only shades of green, but also nuances of white, gray, black, yellow, orange and delicate violet tones. As a rule, its value is determined on the basis of color intensity, vivacity of texture, clarity and transparency. In green jade alone, the connoisseurs differentiate between seven distinct qualities from the intense to light green shades. Whereas in Europe and the USA the green array of jade color is more widely known, in the Far East pure white or a 'fine yellow with delicate pink undertone' is highly valued. In the world of jewelry, the fine violet nuances of 'lavender jade' are also popular. Representing energy and beauty, the traditional and the modern are symbolically and harmoniously combined within jade while gemstone therapy identifies jade as having the ability to stimulate creativity and mental ability at the same time as balancing and harmonizing.
