History of jadeSeveral thousand years, jade was used to make tools and weapons on account of its toughness. The Spanish words “piedra de ijada”, meaning “stone for the pain in the side” were the original name for jade. Spanish explorers saw natives of the place holding pieces of jade closed to their sides with the intention of healing their sickness. The Chinese considered the gemstone as “yu”, meaning “imperial” or “heavenly”. Jade in Chinese culture is a gem for royalty.
