jade

A greenish mineral that is viewed by shugenja as a pure combination of the five elements. It is proof against the Taint, though the jade itself slowly corrupts and turns to obsidian. Jade has been used throughout Rokugan‘s history by samurai entering the Shadowlands to protect them from the Taint. Jade supply is at an all time low, as Kisada I has outlawed it’s use. The Shogunate has had to turn to gaijin sources to maintain a jade supply, but with each passing year it grows more scarce.
