Yellow Jade, pronounced “yu” in Chinese, means “the most beautiful stone.” It was a royal gem in the early dynasties of Ancient China. It was part of cultural, religious and commercial use. Although not as prestigious in the West, jade was held in high regard over other precious metals such as gold and silver. The Chinese had a proverb that said: “gold is estimable, jade is priceless.” Chinese dignitaries were buried in ceremonial suits made of pieces of jade. Nephrite jade was most popular during the Ming Dynasty for making jewelry and figures for Ming tombs.
