jadeiteJadeite is the semi-precious ornamental stone resembling greenstone but with the other components inside. On the top of it, jadeite is rarely discovered unlike greenstone. In the earlier time greenstone and jade were referred to one class minerals, now jade is only jadeite not other stones. Jade was considered as the sacred stone from the time immemorial and our forefathers believed that this stone is able to influence the weather and treat various diseases. The precise name of the stone is not known.

Some surveyors suppose that jadeite is named after the Greek word «ishias» which means thigh ache treated by the jade, while other proposed that the name of the stone comes from the Spanish «piedro de jadee» meaning kidney stone or stone to treat colic.

The Indians, natives of the Central America, believed that jadeite is good to treat kidney diseases and the stone was highly estimated. Historians state that every head of the tribe and every local «king» should have had at least one decoration from jadeite and also their wives wore jadeite decorations.

Jadeite was the most popular stone in the East. Chinese and Japanese Emperor valued jadeite to the extent that they wore jadeite decorations and also they slept on jade pillows and ate from jadeite dishes. Such an unusual favor to the stone refers to the belief in favorable effect of the stone to health of the bearer. Yet, if the stone is close to the body or contacts with the skin, it is even better. On the top of it, the ancient people believed that jadeite is faithful to the stone owner and if necessary it can save life to the owner breaking down in pieces which meant that jadeite saved its owner from death.

Litotherapeutists assume that jadeite strengthens the nervous system, it favorably affects the vessels, stabilizes the blood pressure, purifies blood, improves sexual potency with men, helps to get rid of stones from kidney and bile-excreting ducts, treats kidney and uro-genital diseases. Li Shi Chang who wrote the encyclopedia for the Emperor Van Li of Min dynasty (1596) stated that «jade grinded into granules of a rice bean size improves function of lungs, heart, vocal organs and prolongs life; moreover, it is far more effective when silver or gold is added to the powder». In addition, special healing drink would be prepared from the jade to «strengthen muscles, make them flexible, strengthen bones, sedate thoughts, feed flesh and purify blood. The ones who would take this drink when traveling never suffered from heat or cold, from hunger or thirst». To make the original liquor the equal quantity of jadeite, rice and dew were taken, boiled and filtrated.

Ancient people believed that the healing properties of the stone increase when the stone is heated. Thus, jadeite is the most effective stone for faced tiles in saunas. On the top of it, it looks splendid, and possesses perfect physical and mechanical characteristics. Scientific investigations proved that jadeite when heated is the source of inflared rays used in modern physiotherapy procedures when the stone contacting water releases its metasilicic acid which is healing for the skin. When heated, sodions and some other microelements like Cu, Ag, Zn, Se and others penetrate into the organism through the skin surface and stabilize the vegetative-vascular dystonia.

The most prestigious and fashionable health complexes offer sauna procedures using jadeite. It takes you $100 USD an hour to rest in the jadeite sauna Juvenex in New York and despite the crisis situation, the sauna is always demanded.

The beauty and benefits of jadeite resulted in that the stone was divided into three classes. The jewelry stone is «Imperial» of the emerald-green color, half translucent. «Commercial» of green and grey colors, opaque with thin strings, is used both as ornamental stone as the jewel. «Utility» class stones are of green to grey colors, nonhomogeneous tint, is an ordinary ornamental stone.
