Ying Yu Jade Rollers are the Best You Can Buy!

Posted by Ying Yu Jade

There is so much jade for sale online.  You can't touch each piece to see what it feels like.  And Ying Yu Jade offers a guarantee that your jade item is genuine and natural jade. 

I personally traveled to the jade mines in north east China with a Chinese medicine doctor to meet with a jade carver who would make jade rollers to the doctor's specifications, the kind he uses in his Chinese medicine practice.  Our first rollers were sold online in the year 2000 and we have continued to have the carver make jade rollers for Ying Yu Jade.  My Chinese doctor friend supervises the carving, and makes suggestions on the styles of jade rollers.

We originally started selling the double ended jade roller.  They were so successful we had wholesale from spas throughout the world.  Then we got the small and medium jade rollers.  On one of my trips to China, I tried a jade roller with "needles" carved into the roller, an acu roller, and it was so helpful for me personally, I decided to sell that kind.  Jade acu rollers use more jade in the head, they are heavier, and cost more to make and ship, but those jade rollers are very popular, too.

We also sell a more heavy jade roller with stronger metal to hold the roller in place for practitioners to use.  They are very helpful for individuals who use their jade roller every day, because they hold up well.

Since the jade rollers are hand carved, and you will use them a lot, they may eventually "fall apart".   If that happens, you can make the repair easily.  The head of the roller is adjustable so you can determine the tension, and sometimes the head roller falls out, but that can be easily fixed by gently squeezing the the prongs of the metal into the jade roller.   And if the entire metal falls off from the handle, you can use superglue to get it back on.  Let it set for 24 hours and it will be as good as new.  Jade is strong and lasts a long time.

And they are often on sale in the Today's Special section.

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.

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.

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.
