Jadeite Jewelry Philippines

Jade of the nephrite version.

The use of the mineral as weapons such as spears, arrows, knives and lances is documented in many archaeological sites, it has its origins in China since about 6000 BC. 


Mined (at that time) in the northwest (Turkestan) it slowly found ways to the south, Taiwan and into the Philippines since around 1500 BC. 


The oldest jade artifact ever found from around 1500 BC is a bracelet fragment from the Nagsabaran site in the Cagayan Valley. There are indications that the trade routes even extended to the Maori of New Zealand. Today plenty of jewelry and other body decoration is still manufactured in the country.
