New Zealand Jade
Traditionally, Maori have embraced this stone as a talisman and believed in its spiritual powers to evoke strength and prosperity, to protect, express love and kinship, and to depict growth and harmony. Maori designs carved in jade are steeped in religious and spiritual belief.
As a crystal in itself, greenstone can benefit the wearer on many levels. Physically greenstone is a healing crystal. It differs from normal Jade in that it heals all chakras and brings strength to all areas which are weakened in the body. Normal Jade purifies rather than strengthens, so when used together greenstone and Jade offer a unique start-to-finish healing effect.
Spiritually, greenstone has a protective nature. It offers protection when travelling both physically and when in the astral realm, and it also strengthens one’s natural auric field protection, creating a hard shell on the outer auric layer which won’t let any negative external forces enter ones field. Greenstone is particularly useful for empaths and those who find themselves easily effected by the emotions of others. Because it is an absorbent stone, greenstone also absorbs life force energy both negative and positive easily, so it must be cleansed regularly.
