The Spanish conquistadors at the beginning of the 15th century named the Jade stone “piedra de ijada” meaning the stone for the iliac pit. At that time, Jade stone was used to soothe any nephritic problem. The Indians used stone a lot for kidney pain or kidney colic. In the past, when a person dies a jade stone cicada was placed in the mouth of the deceased as a symbol of eternal life and purity.
This stone was also used by weapon builders, who used the stone to design axes. In China, Jade was used as a social brand; it was present on jewellery or even objects. The people who possessed it were then filled with the dignity of the empire.
In the east, Jade was the sign of the absolute power of the sun embodied by the emperor himself. Indeed, he held a Jade sceptre, a sign of power, and bequeathed Jade tablets to his princes. For the most important first-row princes, they received 2 columns engraved in jade. For the 2nd rank princes, the tablet had a man standing. For the princes of the 3rd rank, the jade stone was a curved man. For the princes of the 4th row, the tablet was accompanied by millet. For the men of 5th rank it is with a rush leaf that the jade tablet was bequeathed.
Today the Jade stone, the stone of power can be found in Canada, China, USA and Myanmar.
