History of Casa del Jade
When the Spanish arrived in Central America, the Mayas protected their most valuable treasure… Jade. They hid the sources of this precious stone and they were forgotten for a few centuries; until they were rediscovered in the 1970’s.

More than a Jewelry Store
We enjoyed our visit to the House of Jade and learning about the history of Guatemala's precious stone. Of particular interest to me was all the different colors of jade from pink to black not just green. A friend has a wedding ring made from the rose/lavender jade which she purchased from this shop and it is very unique and beautiful. Also of interest was the museum which featured masks and sculptures made by the mayans and the National Geographic articles written about the items. The museum is free and offers guided tours daily. You can actually watch the jade artisans at work. Casa del Jade features a jewelry store with very helpful staff and items in all price ranges. I was able to find a beautiful necklace in my price range. The artisans skillfully mix jade with other precious stones for unique and beautiful pieces. Mayan weavers were plying their skills in the courtyard to make lovely table runners which was fun and educational to watch.
