JadeLight to dark green (and sometimes yellow), this luminous stone has been cherished by the Chinese for more than 7,000 years: their poets called it "the concentrated essence of love." It is widely considered a good luck stone. At the end of the 19th century two different minerals were discovered, which were both called jade: nephrite and jadeite. Both have similar properties.
