Jadeite is highly demanded and is exclusively sourced from Myanmar, formerly Burma, hence it is widely known as “Burmese Jade”. It is rich in heritage and widely believed to have spiritual meanings in the Chinese culture. Laughing Buddha is known as Hotei among the Chinese and is considered very auspicious. His large protruding belly is symbolic of happiness, luck and prosperity. Wearing a icy jade Buddha pendant is believed to protect the person who wears it.
