The number 8 is a very auspicious Chinese feng shui symbol, sounding like “good fortune” when spoken, and symbolizing an infinite supply of all good things. This item taps into the power of 8, presenting a mystic knot symbol made of endless number of Eights and accented with jade bead lotus and red tassels – designed to further magnify good fortune. All eight cardinal directions are represented and are believed to have very high potency for success, which began in the Period of 8 in 2004 and will continue until 2024.
Jade is an earth energy that also strengthens the Period of 8’s effects and is thought to intensify the #8 Flying Star or prosperity star. To the Chinese, jade is perhaps the most beloved stone, often called the “noble stone” or the “stone of Heaven” – valued even more than gold in earlier times. It is said to be the most important feng shui crystal, bringing harmony, good luck, friendship and a feeling of self worth. It can also help bring peace and love to relationships that need assistance, since it is thought to help remove negative thinking.
