Red Jade is a variety of Jadeite, one of two distinctly different minerals that share the name Jade.  Nephrite is a calcium magnesium silicate with a smooth surface polish and waxy sheen, usually in shades of white, mid- to deep olive green, brown and black. Jadeite is a sodium aluminum silicate, hard and lustrous, rarer than Nephrite, and usually more expensive. It occurs in various colors, including white-gray green, leafy green, blue or blue-green, emerald green, lavender, pink, red, orange, greenish-black or black. Though they have different compositions, hardnesses, densities and crystal structures, both are exceptionally tough stones, similar in appearance, and equally valuable in metaphysical properties.

Red Jade is an excellent support stone for overcoming self-abuses such as addiction to drugs, alcohol, tobacco or gambling. It gives strength in the face of difficult circumstances and lends the fortitude needed to achieve one’s goal. Red Jade is a stone of luck, carrying a frequency of material prosperity and physical health. It is less suited to long-term prosperity than Green Jade, but is quite beneficial in jump-starting one’s finances when they are low, or in pursuing a promotion, new job or a raise.
