What Does A Clarification Line "Crack" in My Jade Bangle Mean?

Posted by Ying Yu Jade

There is a previous blog post about cracks in jade bangle bracelets.  The post mentioned "clarification lines", and readers have been asking for more information about clarification lines in jade bangle bracelets.


I recently watched an episode about gemstones throughout the world on National Geographic station.  They did a very good informative part about jadeite.  The program showed how gems were formed, by the earth's heat and pressure during its formation, and the impact of natural happenings on gemstone formation.  And the segment explained clarification lines in jade better than I have heard it explained to me in China.  In China, the jade experts always dismissed my concerns about clarification lines as "just natural".  The program showed jadeite being formed, the tremendous amount of heat and pressure.  It showed when the stone was cooling, if an area was fragile, nature strengthened it by adding more elements that turned into lines when the gem was finally formed.  Instead of being a crack that may cause the jade to be more fragile, the clarification line shows that strength was added to the stone.  


Customers would often complain about the "crack" in their jade bangle after they purchased it, so for quite a few years I would list the bangles with the clarification lines in Clearance with a great discount.  And I noticed it was mostly Chinese people who bought them.  They probably were thrilled to get the great price, and laughed at me for letting them sell so cheaply.  I also noticed when I wore the jade bangles that had the clarification lines, they never broke even when I accidently struck them hard on a counter top, or hard surface, while my "perfect" jade bangles sometimes did break under the same circumstance.


Now I understand!



A clarification line will be seen as a line that runs through the the jade.  A crack line runs up and down as you can see on photos in the previous blog post mentioned.  Sometimes they are inside the jade and can't be felt, but they can also be on the top of jade, where you can feel it, and it does feel like a crack.  Jade carvers know how to carve their jade bangle to use clarification lines to their advantage, to use the strongest part of jade stone where there is the highest risk of it being in danger of getting struck.


I still have customers who ask me for jade bangle bracelets with the clarification lines.  They may not understand the purpose of the clarification line, but they like that natural-ness of the jade bangle.  I respect these customers as true jade lovers.  And I do often discount jade bangles with clarification lines to give these natural jade lovers the advantage of a good price on genuine, natural jade.

Ying Yu Jade Gift Guide: Jade Gifts for Women

Posted by Ying Yu Jade

Jade gifts for women:  almost everything in Ying Yu Jade online store would be cherished by women.  Other than the precious jade bangle bracelets that jade loving women value highly, here are some other suggestions.  Jade bangle bracelets need to be just the right size for women, so they can wear them all the time and benefit from the jade qi energy.


Jade jewelry is always a good gift for women.  Ying Yu Jade offers jade bead bracelets, jade necklaces, jade and pearl necklaces and bracelets,


The jade jewelry in the photos above are all adjustable and fit most women.  The jade silk knot bracelets come in a variety of styles, and adjust by pulling the knot, as do the jade necklaces like in the third photo above.  And women customers have a favorite bracelet, the photo in the middle of a carved genuine natural grade A jadeite bead on a pandora style silver bracelet.


The FrownEase "Power Pak"  Wrinkle Reducer includes a jade roller, a pad with Chinese herbs and powdered jade to heat and apply to the forehead or areas with wrinkles, and patches to wear to help reduce wrinkles. Women also like using the jade rollers, to roll on their face and skin to increase circulation and blood flow.  Very popular with women.


Jade eggs and ben wa balls are very helpful to women of all ages,  They help with kegel exercise to strengthen the vagina.  Women who have the "gotta go" problem often benefit from the tightening action of use both jade eggs and ben wa balls.  After childbirth, doing kegel exercise with jade eggs help return the vaginal area to a better condition faster.  After menopause, the kegel exercise plus the good qi energy of the jade help the vagina become stronger and more moist.  One of Ying Yu Jade's most popular collection of products.


And if you know the jade bangle bracelet size, who can resist the appeal of Chinese jade and Burmese jadeite bangle bracelets.  The colorful Chinese "river jade" bangle bracelets are natural color from minerals in the water where it's mined, and the colors relate to the body qi meridians to help balance the body, mind and spirit.  There is a collection of Chinese jade carved bangle bracelets like the "two dragons hold pearl" shown above. This is symbolic of yang male holding yin female.  And the genuine natural grade A Burmese jadeite bangle bracelets will be treasured for their beauty. 

Lots of gift ideas for women.  Enjoy shopping on the Ying Yu Jade site.

Ying Yu Jade Gift Guide: Jade Gifts for Health Practitioners, Wellness

Posted by Ying Yu Jade

People who are health and wellness practitioners, either professional or who practice every day wellness would love jade.  Jade has been used for centuries by Chinese medicine doctors using acupuncture, gua sha,  jade rollers to balance the body's qi meridians.


Jade gua sha scraping tools have been a staple in Chinese people's "medicine chest" because they encourage healing by raising the body "sha", or blood, on specific meridians to heal the point that is causing problems.  The most common use in families is to scrape the da dzui point shown in the photo above to prevent and help heal colds and flu, especially in winter.  We include a small pamphlet with basic information about gua sha with purchase. There are a variety to choose from, they all work similarly.

Jade "needles" 

Jade "needles" and "pointers" are used to apply pressure to free blocked qi on acupuncture points for healing.  You can take these when you go to your acupuncture doctor and ask her to show you which points on your body with benefit from regular stimulation between appointments.


Ying Yu jade rollers are good for everyone!  Use the small roller or small end of the double jade roller on your face and in small areas to stimulate blood flow for complexion.  Use the larger end on body parts to keep your qi flowing smoothly for better health.  If you use the jade rollers on other people, or you want a jade roller that is stronger for your body, the jade practitioners style in the second photo works well.  If you want a mini acupuncture do-it-yourself session, use the jade acu-roller with jade "needles" to stimulate the acu points in your body. 

Jade Pillow Covers are cool and relaxing, and good for your entire body while you rest and sleep.  The jade stimulates the head, and help blood flow to the brain.  Wake up feeling remarkable when you sleep on a jade pillow cover.  There is a lot of jade in these jade pillow covers, they are heavy, and our jade carver who made them used only genuine and natural Chinese jade, the traditional kind of jade used for Chinese medicine for centuries.

Ying Yu Jade Gift Guide: Jade Gifts for Children

Posted by Ying Yu Jade

Ying Yu Jade is so pure and natural and healing,  jade gifts can benefit children. 

Jade Bangle Bracelets for babies and children are made from Chinese jade purchased from the jade mine and made by our jade carver in China.  The jade qi energy helps to nourish and balance growth in babies and children.  And when your child is older, they can wear their precious baby jade bangle on a chain, like a pendant.  Use search terms "baby jade bangle" or "child jade bangle", and these are located in the Traditional Chinese Jade Bangle Collection.

Jade Gua Sha tools and jade rollers are healthy and healing to use on babies and children.  The jade rollers can be used to lightly roll over their bodies to stimulate health and release blocked qi energy.  To help your child prevent illness like coughs, colds and flu, scraping the da zui point, the bone bump on the back of the neck, helps avoid and heal illness. 

Jade pendants, like the "tiger tooth" jade pendant on hematite chain is healthful and "yang" for boys.  The symbol of the tiger tooth relates to growing to manhood. There are other small jade pendants in the Chinese jade pendant collection, and Jadeite Pendant Collection.  Purchase a knotted silk cord to put on the pendant so they have a masculine way to wear their pendant. 

Girls like the jade bead elastic bracelets.  They are pretty, and yin, and good for health. Some of the jade bead bracelets have inspiration word medals on them.  Some also have Guan Yin, Buddha of Compassion that girls like when you tell them her story.


Children also like the small jade carvings, like dragon in the photo above.  And if they are having a difficult time in school, give them a small jade heart to carry in their pocket to remind them they are loved.

Jade is not only for adults.  Customers have shown me photos of their children playing with Mom's jade bangle bracelet, or pendant, and want to have some intriguing and fun jade for themselves.
