There’s just no end to the positive energy one could communicate about jade. It first gained renown thanks to the Emperors in China, who designated it a “heavenstone”. The Aztecs and Mayans also prized jade, considering it even more valuable than gold. They revered the stone as the “stone of love”, which was believed to transform friendship into inner love. The Conquistadors named it piedra de ijada – loinstone – because the indigenous peoples would use it to treat kidney ailments. This is also where the name “nephrite” originated. Jadeite is also part of the jade mineral group, of course.
