In Chinese writing, it is no accident that the character for emperor looks almost identical to the character for jade. In the West, precious gems such as diamonds or rubies were worn by high-ranking people as status symbols. However, in China, it is jade that has been a symbol of status, spirituality, purity, and health for over 9,000 years. Jade has been mined and worked in China since the Stone Age. In prehistoric sites, jade artifacts include simple ornaments with bead, button, and tubular shapes.
By 3,000 BC, jade became known as yu or the royal gem. Xu Shen, from the Han Dynasty (206 BC to 221 AD), details the five virtues of jade in his work. Benevolence for its lustre and brilliance.
Honesty for its translucent texture. Wisdom for its tranquil and far-reaching tone. Integrity and Bravery for it may be broken but cannot be twisted.
