For example, green Jade signifies love and is believed to attract love. It is also said to increases trustworthiness and fidelity and to inspire love in one’s later years of life.
Jade makes a great jewellery gift. Indeed, it has been treasured in China as the royal gemstone since at least 3,000 BC. The ancient Chinese believed Jade was the essence of heaven and earth, and carved Jade into birds and beasts to use as items of worship. Jade was also a symbol of power, and only aristocrats could own items made from the gemstone. It was often placed in the tombs of important members of the Imperial family assuring immortality. Confucius concluded that Jade was associated with the five cardinal virtues: compassion, modesty, courage, justice, and wisdom. The Chinese even drank it at the time of death as a powerful embalming solution. Jade can be associated with the birthstone month of March. So: Jade makes the perfect present for that special event requiring extra strength.
