Stone Of Tranquility

Nephrite is not a distinct species, it is a variety of amphibole in the Ferro-actinolite/Tremolite series of minerals. It is one of two different minerals called JADE, the other being Jadeite. The determination of whether the mineral is Nephrite is by visual observation. It has a microcrystalline structure. It is an extremely tough mineral and ancient made tools and weapons from this mineral. It is also prized as a gemstone in Chinese culture for over 5,000 years. Black Nephrite Jade is a protective stone and a stone of health and abundance. It is used as a good luck talisman in many cultures. New Age Therapists say Nephrite Jade instils a sense of calm and wellbeing, and helps to increase one's enjoyment of life. Nephrite promotes confidence and calms the nerves.
