What is Lavender Jade?

Natural Lavender Jade is one of the rarest shades of Jadeite, and it has been used to create timeless and intricate carvings and jewelry pieces for thousands of years. Today, it is increasingly popular due to its durability combined with its elegant appearance and many crystal healing uses.

The term Jade can refer to two different stones, Nephrite and Jadeite. Lavender Jade is a sought-after purple variety of Jadeite. It is a sodium-aluminum silicate rock, and the purple color of Lavender Jade is attributed to traces of Manganese. 

It is most commonly found in massive forms as a cryptocrystalline rock material. Jadeite rarely forms defined crystals. Lavender Jade from different locations can display varying shades of lavender, have different undertones, or be combined with other colors. Specimens also vary in translucency and clarity.

Lavender Jade naturally offers an energetic presence of compassion and care. This calming and graceful stone quickly brings about a feeling of ease, and it has many benefits for our healing and spiritual practices, which we will explore below.

Did you know, as this stone is in high demand but low supply, dyed versions of Lavender Jade are on the market, and some can be pretty tricky to tell apart from natural specimens? Luckily, these are usually made with White Jadeite, so they will still hold similar properties

Lavender Jade Metaphysical Properties and Benefits

The metaphysical properties of Lavender Jade are represented by attributes, including its colors, ruling elements, chakras, planets, deities, and numerology. The gentle or deep purple color energy of this type of Jadeite contributes a magical, spiritual, elegant, and very feminine energy. 

Lavender Jade is primarily associated with the Earth element. It resonates with the nurturing and grounded energy of Mother Earth, and it also has a gentle touch of the Fire element, which contributes to its warm, comforting, and protective qualities.

The ruling chakras of Lavender Jade are the Crown and Heart Chakras. This brings an energetic focus to heart-based living and spiritual awareness. Lavender Jade helps us to access a state of divine connection that is so peaceful. It brings higher understanding, ease, and support to any situation.

It is a stone of compassion and love, which is also evident in its association with the Goddess Quan Yin and its connection to the planet Venus. 

The numerical vibration of Lavender Jade, 11, clearly confirms the divine connection that this crystal offers us. 11 is the master angel number of synchronicity, spiritual alignment, and support.

The meaning of Lavender Jade is Serenity

Jade has been revered since ancient times, especially by the Chinese and Mesoamerican peoples, when Green Jade was the most popular.

The Aztecs worked with Jade for healing the kidneys and liver, and the Chinese had many uses for Jade, including longevity, peace, and protection from evil energies and spirits. 

Today, through its use as a crystal healing stone, we know that Lavender Jade works very similarly. It radiates purity that extends to purifying the body, mind, and spirit, and it allows us to access an absolutely serene state
