When we walked over to the jade museum we learned that jade found in Guatemala comes in a variety of colors and shades - white, lavender, green, and black. The Mayans attached meaning to each color. White is for children, lavender for love, and black for strength.
They also looked up our Mayan astrological symbols. I am a rabbit. Kyle is a woodpecker. And Nana is a monkey. Grace's astrological sign is called "Imox" (/ee-mosh/) - the crocodile.
The crocodile symbolizes beginnings. Crocodiles are clever, creative, assertive, and full of energy. Crocodiles are likely to be the first to initiate new projects, make changes, or take a stand. They have outstanding protective instincts and make great caretakers.
