I disagree, I think? We are dealing with nobility. Logic as I see it is
that the more valuable the stone the more powerful it would be against
evils. So jade would be important for the lower nobility of a specific
region but not for the upper class nobles who could afford diamonds.

Now I want to know your sources. My first reference is Spain 15th C but
I shy away from other European countries. Please enlighten me.
