Jade is associated with the quality of protection in many East Asian cultures. Furthermore, in vajrayana, the color green is related to the enlightened activities of the buddhas and thus also associated with Tara who protects from all fears and terrors. Among energy workers, jade is said to relate to the nervous system, cleanse blood, and remove toxins. Some believe that it has powers to purify the kidney.
