"Gold has a value; Jade is invaluable", Chinese sayings.
Your polish and brilliance, iridescent brightness,
Represent the heaven, represents purity and rightness.
Born of mountain and of water, humbleness of mother earth,
Yet an admirable substance, shines like a person's true worth.
You may look fragile, yet your perfect compactness,
Represent, wisdom, intelligence with sureness,
Your resonance, pure, prolonged, with such grace,
Represents music, clarity, sweetness and solace.
You are subtle yet truly a wonder,
Your beauty unbounded by age nor culture,
Interior flaws, showing through the transparency,
unafraid and proud… and that is true beauty.
For Jade, you represent Virtue, Grace and Beauty.
