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.
