Jade is the most prized in modern Chinese culture. Jade is still a popular gemstone in China, so pieces of jade can be purchased everywhere. Many people, especially children or young people, wear jade pendants. And since then, for centuries, there has been a deep connection between Chinese culture and smooth green stone.
The beautiful color of jade made it a mysterious stone for the Chinese in ancient times, so jade objects were popular as sacrificial vessels and were often buried with the dead. During the Han Dynasty, the wealthiest Chinese nobles were sometimes buried in jade suits made of hundreds of small jade tiles joined together, sometimes with gold thread.
