Jade: Considered the most precious of all stones in ancient Egypt and even now in Japan and the Orient. It is credited with five qualities: clarity, courage, justice, wisdom, and modesty. It is folklored to evoke tranquility, so much so that even holding Jade in your hand may cause a feeling of serenity or wisdom. Consequently, it also said to help to the smooth transition to the next world and aids in peaceful death and dream yoga. Jade provides protection from from enemies and during long journeys.
