Jade & lithotherapy

According to crystal healers and New Age believers, crystal and gem healing is an art and practice, done on a metaphysical level, that is being rediscovered because of the power of the earth's energies that have been absorbed by these sacred objects that, in turn, inherit vital healing powers used to heal many types of ailments. They believe that crystals have powers that can be used for treatment of everything like pain, stress, depression, etc.

Crystal healers associate jade with ailments of the immune system, thymus, heart, kidney and nervous system chakra. It cleanses the body, aiding to its filtration and elimination. The crystal healing followers also believe it can stimulate white blood cell and adrenaline production, which could account for its long association with sports. Some believe it can darken in times of superior fitness and lighten when illness comes. Jade is also known as helping fertility and childbirth. Jade encourages wisdom, mental peace and tolerance of others. It can rejuvenate during periods of stress, reduce fears, banish negative thoughts and increase a person’s capacity for giving and receiving love.  Jade makes a good worry stone and is often used in rosaries. It can be placed anywhere on the body.
