In Chinese culture, jade symbolizes beauty and purity and is believed to bring good health, fortune, and prosperity. This is why jade is a big deal in Hong Kong, so much so that there’s a whole business dedicated to this gemstone.
The jade that you will find in Hong Kong comes in different colors and forms such as jewelry, lucky charms, and figurines. You will also find synthetic (fake) and real jade. If you’re looking to get real and expensive jade, it’s best to hire a professional.
