The Colors of Jade

Different colors of jade

 
One of the most important value factor for jade is color.
Many consumers traditionally associate jadeite with the color green, and may come as a surprise to learn that the gemstone comes in various other colors as well!
As the image above portrays, jade can come in many different colors of the spectrum. All of these colors can be attractive.
 
While jade meaning is rooted in calm wisdom, healing and protection, there is a belief that each jade color carries a slightly different meaning and representation of energy.
Aside from the spiritual energy, we also want to talk about the aesthetics. Color can be thought of as a persona, it connects with our mind and is a way for us to exhibit our mood and style.
