Jade is another silicate mineral however it is widely perceived as more of an ornamental rock. Jade is the term used to encompass a large variety of gemstones but it’s pure form is jadeite and nephrite. The gemstone is found in many countries globally such as New Zealand, Australia and the USA. Jade appears in a variety of colours such as white, yellow, green and black. Jade appears in a wide range of jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Jade is believed to assist one in gaining wisdom as well as in protection against accidents.
