Chunky Burmese Jade Bangle (6.7cm inside measurement)
This lovely, chunky Burmese Jade bangle, has a stunning array of mottled pale milky green colours together with contrasting dark green colouring. This is one of our heavier bangles, a real statement piece, and the inside measurement is 6.7cm. Jade is one of the worlds most iconic gemstones, and is referred to as a stone of wealth and longevity. Please note, as the inside measurement is 6.7cm and does not open, it therefore has to slip onto the wrist. Tip. If a plastic bag is first placed over the wrist and then lubricated with hand cream or soap, jade bangles can be gently eased over the hand remarkably easily.
Jade is normally thought of as a green stone but it can also found in a vast range of other colours. These can be anything from white, grey, yellow and red and surprisingly also with blue colouring. In the Far East, Jade has long been sought after, its hardness and strength. This meant that apart from decorative purposes it was also an ideal stone for tools and weapons. The earliest examples of intricately carved Jade jewellery are thousands of years old. Although the majority of Jade is found in Myanmar (Burma) and China, Jade is also found in other countries including New Zealand and Canada
Metaphysically, this is the stone of good luck and happiness. Jade has also been regarded as a symbol of purity and serenity, as well as being the ultimate dream stone. It is highly regarded for its powerful healing qualities, as well as it being a protective talisman.
