Jade has been in use for tool making as well as jewellery since pre-history. It is the traditional gift for a 12th wedding anniversary. Since jade is a natural substance the colour can vary in intensity from very pale to medium green.
The Saint Benedict Medal is a Christian Sacramental medal containing symbols and text related to the life of Saint Benedict of Nursia, used by Roman Catholics, as well as Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists and the Western Orthodox, in the Benedictine Christian tradition, especially votarists and oblates.
The medal is one of the oldest and most honored medals used by Christians and, due to the belief in its power against evil, is also known as the "devil-chasing medal". As early as the 11th century, it may have initially had the form of Saint Benedict's cross, and was used by Pope Leo IX.
