Lavender Jade Polished Healing Crystal Tumble Stone
Lavender Jade is a variety of Jadeite, one of two distinctly different minerals that share the name Jade. Nephrite is a calcium magnesium silicate with a smooth surface polish and waxy sheen, usually in white, mid-to deep olive green, brown and black. Jadeite is a sodium aluminium silicate, hard and lustrous, rarer than Nephrite, and usually more expensive. It occurs in various colours, including white-grey green, leafy green, blue or blue-green, emerald green, lavender or purple, pink, red, orange, greenish-black or black. Though they have different compositions, hardness, densities and crystal structures, both are exceptionally tough stones, similar in appearance, and equally valuable in metaphysical properties. In this article, both minerals will be referred to as Jade, except for attributes listed that are specific to Purple Jade.
Jade, in all forms, is valued most for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures and today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve. Cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and peaceful death is considered a powerful healing stone. Jade signifies wisdom gathered in tranquillity, dispelling the negative and encouraging one to see oneself as they are, an amulet of good luck and friendship.
Lavender Jade is an excellent crystal to use on retreats or during meditations as a stone of spiritual purification. It helps in releasing cynicism and suppressed anger, leading to embracing an attitude of serene acceptance.
Jade is the stone of calm amid a storm. Its action balances nerves and soothes the heart.
Jade is excellent for healing feelings of guilt and extreme cases of defeatism. It also treats “pathological normality,” an excessive desire to adapt oneself to a group, even if it is sect-like, exaggerated militarism, a follow-the-leader attitude, or the compulsive desire to give in to general opinion to belong no matter the cost.
