This too is a handed-down belief from ancient times through association that those with large Jade collections are the wealthy and this is how they can be acquired. So it takes on the patina of a wealthy attribute and then a wealthy adjunct, and then potentially a path to wealth that is not truly deserved. It is simply an icon of wealth in some cultures but does not in itself bring wealth to people. It is more that wealth is required to acquire Jade in the first place. So in this case, it is not a chicken and egg problem, there is a very clear cause and effect relationship that wealth must come first, so is not a product of Jade ownership.
