Jade or Quartz Gua Sha: Which to Choose?

When it comes to choosing a Gua Sha facial massage tool, the matter of material is paramount. Two popular options emerge regularly: the Jade Gua Sha and the Quartz Gua Sha. However, which one is most beneficial for your skincare routine? This article will help you make the right choice. THE

Jade Gua Sha: The Truth About Jade

Jade is widely recognized for its soothing and balancing properties. It is reputed to help eliminate toxins from the skin and to improve blood circulation. However, not all jade massage tools are created equal. There are two categories of natural jade: nephrite jade and jadeite jade.

Nephrite jade

Nephrite jade is generally more abundant and is often used for making jewelry or massage tools. This stone is particularly appreciated for its resistance and its natural luster, but it can vary in quality.

jadeite jade

As for jadeite jade, it is rarer and more expensive, especially when it is of good quality. Jadeite jade is a real gemstone in Asia and its price can exceed that of diamond. Because of its high cost, many manufacturers use lower quality materials instead, such as serpentine, aventurine, reconstituted powders or even resins, which they fraudulently market under the name "jade".

Quartz Gua Sha: The Quality Option

Faced with these misleading practices, Pierre de Lune has chosen to focus on quartz for its Gua Sha tools. Quartz, especially rose quartz, is a semi-precious stone whose quality is constant and easily identifiable. Quartz Gua Sha is known for its soothing and anti-aging properties. It helps in tissue regeneration, reduction of wrinkles and stimulation of collagen production. Additionally, Rose Quartz is associated with love and emotional healing, providing an added sense of well-being and relaxation to your skincare routine.


The Choice of Quartz At Pierre de Lune, we make it a point of honor to offer products of the highest quality, accessible to all budgets. This is why we recommend the Quartz Gua Sha. In addition to benefiting from the benefits of quartz, you can be assured of the quality and authenticity of your massage tool. Discover our selection of Quartz Gua Sha, and choose an authentic and effective product for your skincare routine."
