Jade, a kind of noble mineral, is divided into nephrite and jadeite. Nephrite is a kind of hydrous calcium and magnesium silicate. Hardness is 6.5, good toughness, translucent to opaque, fibrous crystalline aggregate. Jadeite is sodium aluminum silicate. Hardness is 6.5-7, transparent to opaque, granule to fibrous aggregate, dense lump. The two kinds of jade have similar appearance. The proportion of jadeite (3.25-3.4) is bigger than that of nephrite (2.9-3.1).
Jade contains over 30 kinds of trace elements beneficial to human body, including: selenium, zinc, nickel, copper, cobalt, manganese, magnesium, calcium and so on. Long-term exposure to jade products can make the cell tissue of human body more active, promote blood circulation, boost metabolism, and discharge the waste of the body timely. Magnesium is also in cells of human body. Jade can make drinking water and natural water into active water, thus can boost immunity of the human body. Foot massage can promote the blood circulation of the feet and boost the blood circulation of the whole body. Foot massage is a best method to promote blood circulation of the feet. Moreover, foot massage has the following functions: promote qi and blood circulation, dredge meridians, ward off disease, regulate nerves and so on. Through the pressure on the feet, it can start the regulatory function of the human body; activate the cell potential of human organs, boost immunity and so on. Foot massage can prevent and treat the cancer, stroke and heart disease. Jade is natural, glossy, beneficial to human body and with no radiation.
The main colors are: white, yellow, green, aquamarine blue, blue and white, brown, maroon, dull-red, dark green, black and so on.
Agate is a kind of colloform mineral. In mineralogy, it belongs to chalcedony class. The chemical composition of agate is SiO2, and has some trace elements, such as Fe, Al, Mn, V and so on, so it appears various colors. Translucent to opaque, hardness: 6.5-7, proportion: 2.55-2.91, refraction index: 1.539. Agate is one of the gem minerals which are used the earliest by humans. Agate origins are widely distributed in China, various kinds, mainly in Heilongjiang, Liaoning, Hubei and other areas.
Main functions: promote blood circulation, boost metabolism, maintain beauty and keep young, regulate female hormone, benefit genital system, treat gynaecological disease, have effect on rectum, stomach and intestine, active viscera, prevent constipation, discharge toxin, and have relief to hepatopathy, rheumatism, neuralgia, varicosity and so on.
The main colors are white, red, yellow, green, blue, pink, and black and so on.
With natural colors, anti-corrosion and weather-resistance, jade pebbles and agate particles can be made into polished jade pebbles and agate pebbles with various specifications. Widely used in: public building, villa, garden architecture, road pavement, bonsai filling materials, garden art, garden landscape, wall decoration, bathroom decoration, commercial building, exhibition hall, footpath in garden and park, terrazzo floor, aquarium, sauna, hotel, wall and other construction. It is also the high quality material for water purification, sewage treatment, electricity, park and so on. It is noble and top-grade.
