Nephrite is one of the two forms of Jade; the other is Jadeite. Like all Jades, Nephrite is an abundance and prosperity stone. It can be kept in a cash register to increase business, or carried/worn to start a new enterprise. Nephrite is also an earth healing crystal and will bring abundance in the garden. It can be placed in and around the home to bring peace and harmony to all who reside there, and when placed near the Heart Chakra, encourages unconditional love. A protective stone, Nephrite can be used to prevent accidents and other mishaps.
Physically, Nephrite Jade alleviates skin problems such as acne; assists the lymphatic system; helps with bladder and kidney problems, and eases the pain of arthritis and other joint illnesses, especially in the hips. Nephrite also helps with fluid retention, high blood pressure and imbalances in blood sugar levels.
