Jade has been carved and used as a decorative gemstone since prehistoric times. It is believed by many to have protective qualities. A very popular type of jade jewelry is the jade bangle carved from a single piece of jade. These bangles are generally worn everyday from childhood and never removed. If the bracelet breaks it is an indication that it has protected the wearer from a very serious injury.
