What is Xiuyan Jade?
In geology, there are typically two types of pure and true jade: Jadeite and Nephrite. Our rollers are made of Xiuyan Jade, this type falls under the category of Nephrite, although it includes deposits of Serpentine. We chose this type as it’s easier to shape into a beauty tool and carve. In ancient China, historically and culturally Xiuyan Jade is included under the larger Jade umbrella. Please note: Nephrite and Jadeite are so extremely valuable and expensive that they’re more commonly used in jewellery.
What is the difference between the Xiuyan Jade and Rose Quartz Gua Sha?
There are differences related to the type of material, stone (XiuyanJade) vs. crystal (Rose Quartz and Amethyst). The difference between them can be found in their different energy fields from a holistic healing point of view. Jade is known to help relax the nervous system and eliminates toxins from the skin. It is also believed to balance the body & mind connection and dispel bad energy. The Rose Quartz crystal is commonly referred to as the love-stone: it heals and attracts self-love and love for others, raises self-esteem and restores confidence. On top of that ancient Egyptians trusted Rose Quartz to have anti-aging properties.
NB: Due to natural variations in the stones and crystals, every Coucou Gua Sha is unique in pattern and colour and the actual product may vary from the picture shown here.
