This is a glorious nephrite jade in a glorious deepest green but put her under a light and the shades of green come alive. The polish is perfect and really shows the depth and intricacy of the color, accented by slightly white clouds and a bid of deepest green areas. She is 1 lb 2.9 oz and 2.6” in diameter … the perfect size to fit comfortably in the hand or cupped between the hands! She is a meditation just to gently rotate in the light and study the play of color and depth, allowing the shapes and color changes to create images before your eyes! As a note, the actual green color is slightly more grayed than it shows in the pictures … the camera apparently likes this shade of green!
Nephrite jade is such a wonderful stone! It is composed of calcium, magnesium, and iron-rich amphibole minerals (tremolite and/or actinolite) and is sacred in Chinese culture and traditions. It is considered to be a gemstone and quickly warms to the hand, eager to do its work. It has long been revered in cultures all over the world for its abilities with the “dreamtime”. When we sleep, we have dreams that are messages in code. Generally, when people dream of houses, for instance, they nay be having issues getting their mind in order. But with every person, these codes are a little different. Dreaming of a house to one may not mean quite the same to another. Jade is considered one of the sacred stones because it assists the dreamer in relating these images to everyday life. That brings a fullness and completeness, knowing that these important messages are being used on all levels. At that stage, true enlightenment is possible.
This Jade Spirit is ready for service as a personal meditation tool or in a Reiki or crystal healing practice. Allowing the patient to hold the sphere in the receiving hand (or between the hands) during treatment brings about a relaxed state which is open to the healing to follow. Placing the sphere on a nightstand at night continues the healing, allowing more lucid dreams, better dream recall and improved application of the dreams to the personal Now.
