Named by the Spanish conquistadores 'piedra de ijada' meaning hip stone and worn on the hip to prevent kidney diseases. The two most common forms are Jadeite and Nephrite. Many colours are available, but the most popular is green. Attracts good luck, friendship and promotes wisdom.
It has been used to make ornaments such as pins, brooches or other types of jewellery, paper knives, inkstands, marbles and seals. It is a popular talisman for protection, good fortune, and good health, and can promote inner stability, composure, and maturity.
Paua shell is formed from the inner nacreous shell of molluscs. It is the Maori name for edible sea snails. Paua shell is thought to strengthen and soothe the body, particularly helping with fertility and nurturing.
A beautiful green stone, exhibiting layers with dark and light, often concentric banding. It is in fact a major copper ore, with substantial deposits presently being mined in Zaire and Zambia. When worn it raises the spirits and induces a general feeling of happiness. It is believed to alleviate asthmatic problems and toothache. During Medieval times those who wore Malachite were said to be protected from the power of witches. The stone afforded special protection for children.
