Lavender jade is one of the rarest forms of jade, and the mineral manganese provides its violet tint. Lavender jade is said to have a gentle energy that can calm, balance the mind and bring joy, inner peace and harmony. Even without disclosing it, the enormous amount of lavender jade in the market would have warned merchants about the possibility of adulteration. Lavender jade is one of the rarest jadeite colors.
There is a certain difference of opinion as to whether it is a jade or a rock, since the concentration of jadeite in Turkish purple jade is measured between 40 and 60%. Thank you, I really enjoyed reading this, since I just bought my first piece of lavender jade, two small pendants, one for my bracelet and the other for a necklace, are small but very beautiful in lavender color. Surprisingly, purple jade bracelets made with rolled stones seem to be the most affordable form of lavender jade jewelry. In 1863, Alexis Damour established that Chinese jade (nephrite, the “traditional” jade) and Burmese jade (which he called “jadeite”) are different minerals with similar properties.
All forms of jade are naturally great and have anti-inflammatory properties, which could mean that a purple jade bracelet provides the necessary relief. Traditional gemstone jades are relatively pure jadeites or nephrites with trace elements that provide color, while tests have established that Turkish purple jade contains between 40 and 60% jadeite, and it is unknown what combination of minerals gives this material its color. We took a closer look at the metaphysical properties of purple jade above, however, you should know that jade also has a lot of physical healing properties. It depends on the source of the jade and the creative process that was used to turn it into a pendant.
Knowing if the stone is jade or rock will undoubtedly be important for the collector of fine minerals and precious stones; however, I don't consider it a problem when it comes to carving and selling Turkish purple jade, due to its unique color and performance under the hand of the lapidary artist.
