Jade has been revered by the Chinese for thousands of years. A potent sign of good fortune that mankind is to be endowed with a wise and learned sage, it was said that when Confucius was born the qilin (mystical unicorn) appeared just before his birth at his house with a jade book in its mouth.
A symbol of status, power, rank and well-being Jade has been used by Chinese emperors and empresses, imperial court officials and powerful Mandarins of wealth and influence. Apart from its aesthetic beauty it is worn as an amulet to bring good fortune and luck to the wearer and as protection against evil and harm. In an uncut jade block or an ornamental object such as a jade carving it enhances the feng-shui of the environment attracting and retaining the good ‘chi’ bringing prosperity and abundance of a good harvest.
