Jade is an ancient gemstone that has multiple meanings, including protection, energy balance, love, healing and nourishment. Jade got its name from two different gemstones, including jadeite and nephrite.
Jade is traditionally known as a green gemstone, though there are many other colors for the beautiful and natural stone. Other colors have their own meanings as well, such as black jade for protection against negativity, blue jade for peace and reflection, brown jade to connect you to the Earth and orange jade for bringing joy and better energy. Other colors of jade include purple or lavender, red, white and yellow.
