A beautifully hand carved 1.25” BC jade bear holding a fish sits atop sparkling amethyst crystal. Assembled in Canada. Jade, a stone with a long history, is solid to translucent green. Ancient Chinese symbolized it with courage, wisdom, justice, and mercy. The soothing green colour of jade makes it a wonderful healing stone, which increases fertility and longevity. It is an emotional balancer that gives the feeling of peace, steadiness, and nurturing. Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz crystal composed of silicon dioxide with traces of iron. In ancient times amethyst was thought to reduce the effects of too much alcohol because of its similarity in color to red wine. It is thought to dispel negativity and create a peaceful environment. Bears are known for everything from being cuddly and playful to stoic and strong. In the spirit kingdom the bear is emblematic of grounding forces and strength. All in all, the bear is a magnificent creature to be respected.
