BUDDHA: Hand Carved Black Jade Desktop Statue
Crystals were created as the earth formed and they have continued to metamorphose as the planet itself has changed. They are the earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.
Crystals make excellent jewelry for both men and women. Wearing gems used to be a royal or priestly prerogative. The high priest of Judaism wore a breastplate set with precious stones. It was much more than a badge of office; it conveyed power to the wearer. As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewelry and talismen. They had a protective as well as decorative function, guarding their wearer from harm.
Crystals have been used to heal and bring balance, working through resonance and vibration. Crystals are said to heal holistically - that is to say, they work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being. They realign subtle energies that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and activating linkage points to the chakras that regulate the body's vibrational stasis. Chakra stone therapy has been shown to help cancer patients.
The gemstone property information here is to use as you see fit, but is not to take the place of professional medical care. Crystals, Gemstones and Talismen can negate, protect, encourage, strengthen, and balance and promote healing and positivity. Their effects can be extraordinary, but use in addition to medical advice, and not as a substitute for proper care.

Many people fail to realize that jade comes in more colors than green. In fact, the different colors of jade each have their own meaning or "properties."
For example, black jade represents power, protection, wisdom and self-control. In a broader sense, the stone speaks to choosing the right path.
Black jade's power takes on the quality of purification and discharges negativity.
Black jade is also associated with the sign of Taurus, the planet Venus, the flow of water, holiness and root chakra. The root chakra is the basis of all other chakras and refers to a grounding source that allows humans to connect with the earth's energies.
The amount of iron oxide and magnesium present in jade dictates its color. For example, jade with a high magnesium content will likely appear white. Conversely, black jade possesses significant iron oxide content (as much as 8 percent). Black jade is essentially a dark version of a multi-colored stone.
