Jade ...Metamorphic Mysticism ..

Jade is a complex gemstone , formed as a result of the processes of metamorphism , in areas called subduction zones, where the Plates forming the Earths crust meet and are drawn down into the layer beneath the crust , the Mantle.

Jade has two varietes Jadeite , sodium aluminium silicate and Nephrite, a calcium magnesium iron silicate. 

Jade has been used by humans since Neolithic times over 5000B.C.  It has always been greatly revered in Chinese culture , being a symbol of good luck and good health . It is also thought to bring harmony ,  peace and virtue .

It is the birthstone for Taurus and Libra.
