Red Jade

Red jade is the most passionate and stimulating of the various jade colors. It is constructively associated with love and releasing negative energy.

In addition to carrying the same generic properties to jade, it accesses anger, releasing tension so that it can be harnessed creatively and can enhance assertion in timid people. However, it is possible that red jade has the power to daunt its possessor because its energy levels might be over-stimulating.

If used carefully, one could learn to utilize the benefits of this powerful red jade and take advantage of its magnetism to negativity in order to deal with buried emotions.

Naisha Ahsian, co-author of The Book of Stones, says that red jade “is a stone of physical vitality, strength and passion. It stimulates one’s life-force energy, creative energy and sexual energy. Red jade is the chi stone, facilitating and enhancing the flow of life energy through the body and energy field.”

Red jade is often confused with fire jade, yet it they are not the same.

Some types of fire jade can appear glowing red and fall under a category of red jade, yet not all fire jade appears red. Red jade is found in the USA, China, Italy, Myanmar, Russia, and Middle East.

Another example of red jade from Big Sur. The red, orange and yellow colors are from iron oxide that the piece of jade accumulates when in the soil. This is also know as vulcan jade and is exclusive to the Big Sur Coast.

    Is there such a thing as pure red jade, or is most of what people call red jade actually agate. All of the “red jade” jewelry I have found has been dyed.

    Thanks for any info you can give me.

    Trudy,

    It depends on what you mean by pure. Pure jade is white and is why the Chinese valued it so highly. Red jade, on the other hand, is technically dyed; in one of two ways.

    Some jade is dyed naturally. Jade in soil with a high iron content will absorb the iron. This can turn it red, orange, yellow, or a combination there of.

    Some jade is dyed by humans. This usually gives it a uniform red color.

    It is hard to tell the difference if you do not know your jade, so you should always purchase all jade from reputable dealers.
