For thousands of years artists and craftsmen have prized the magical qualities of the rare mineral Jade. From ancient European caves to the islands of the Pacific ocean Jade was a treasured stone.
The stone has been long though to protect the kidney, heart, larynx, liver, spleen, thymus, thyroid and strengthen the body. It also adds longevity. Jade is known as a symbol of love and virtue.
Nephrite is only one of two distinct minerals classed as Jade. Owing to its fine-grained interlocking mesh of needles, nephrite is the toughest known mineral.

This means that jade is delicate yet tough at the same time the qualities of a real gentleman the qualities which have led it to become the most used, loved and valued carving material of all time.
