Very physical in nature, Nephrite stimulates all the senses while increasing life force energy. It also brings abundance and prosperity. Ancients often wore this stone to remedy dis-eases of the kidneys.
Nephrite is one of the two distinct minerals commonly known as jade. While nephrite doesn't match the variety or the fine green “imperial jade” colors found in jadeite, it does occur in attractive colors, including green, and is even more durable as a gem material for jewelry and carved art objects.
