This adorable hanging features a cute Jade Tortoise attached to a red card and embellished with decorative beads.
One of the four celestial animals (Dragon, Phoenix, Tiger, and Tortoise), the Tortoise is sacred to and much loved by the Chinese as a symbol of longevity, stability, strength, support, and endurance. An animal that is the epitome of good health, the tortoise is the best icon of longevity. There the Crane (another symbol of longevity) is said to live a thousand years, the tortoise is believed to live up to 3000 years and therefore is extremely popular with those who seek to live a long and healthy life. Bearer of the magical Lo Shu square which all Feng Shui theories are based on, the tortoise is also a symbol of protection and wealth.
Jade or ‘yu’ in Chinese is also known as the “Stone of Heaven”. It is the desired stone prized for thousands of years in China for its protective powers and healing qualities. It is also said to stimulate creativity and mental agility and enhance one’s health. Thus, Jade is very popular among the elderly folks who would often wear it in the form of a bracelet or carry a piece of the carved stone in their pockets. Today, Jade is regarded as a symbol of the good and the beautiful. It embodies the Confucian virtues of compassion, wisdom, humility, peace, harmony, modesty, justice, and courage.
Besides being a charming accessory, the Longevity Jade Tortoise Hanging Amulet is a wonderful Feng Shui lucky charm with all the protection and blessings associated with Jade and the Tortoise symbol. Carry it for peace of mind and prepare to welcome good health, harmony, prosperity, and abundance into your life!
