Canadian Jade

Going back against my shopping ban, after lunch today, I caved in and purchase two jade accessories.

Lately, I've been feeling very sentimental about Vancouver and Canada. Maybe because it has to do with the fact that I'm moving to New Zealand in the near future?

Regardless, I'm seeking little Canadian things to remind me of home when I get overseas.
Canadian jade ring. Super simple looking piece :) I was stoked that they had it in my size! I got small fingers :P
 Canadian jade maple leaf - doesn't get any more Canadian than that, eh?
The Canadian jade can be found in the Cassiar Mountain Range in British Columbia, the Rockies, Yukon and Alaska. Both of these accessories were carved from jade found up north.

Jade is also believed to have spiritual powers that brings peace, wisdom and balance.
