Emerald, Aventurine, Jade, and Malachite take Center Stage!
By Eliza Marie Somers
In Part I about Green Crystals, we looked at some of the more obscure green stones. Now let’s take a look at the more popular green crystals.
Emerald (shown in picture with a piece of ruby). Gotta love a stone that invokes the Emerald Island of Ireland. This is one of the purest green colored crystals. It is known for prosperity and healing. Emerald opens the heart and “brings an energy of hope, encouragement, gentleness and abundance into one’s auric field,” states Naisha Ahsian in “The Book of Stones.”
Emeralds are also known for their vitality, and are good for memory and patience. AND the plague! according to “The Crystal Healer” by Philip Permutt. Well, with the pandemic and Coronavirus still hanging around, we should stock up on emeralds.
Green Aventurine. Aventurine, which comes in a variety of colors, is best known for its green shade. I always turn to this crystal for prosperity as Richard Simmons describes it as a stone of optimism and zest of life, helping one move forward in life. Co-author Naisha Ahsian describes Green Aventurine as that of spring bursting forth after a long, dark winter.
Melody states in “Love Is In The Earth,” that Green Aventurine is an excellent protector of the heart and provides a shield for “energy vampires.”
OK this cracked me up from Melody in “Love Is In The Earth” -- “Jade occurs in the form of Jadeite …” “Jadeite is a form of Jade…” Now that we know that; place Jade or Jadeite under your pillow as it is a “dream stone,” and helps you realize your potential as you pursue your life’s purpose. The Mayans valued Jade for its connection to the elders, and used it to transmute negativity. Jade is a good stone for a child as it helps with problem-solving. And Green Jade is great for changing you luck.
Malachite. Who doesn’t love the verdant swirls in Malachite? Malachite is a stone of transformation. So, it can assist you in changing your situation, and clears all the chakras. It is known for helping to protect against radiation and regulates RNA/DNA, according to Melody.
Simmons calls Malachite one of the most important stones for “protection from negative energies,” and offers a “cloak of invisibility.” Co-author Ahsian states Malachite “strengthens our ability to take action in the world, and to create form from our thoughts and ideas.” A great crystal for manifesting our desires.
And according to Ahsian, Malachite assists with oxygenation of the body and overall vitality. Another reason to carry or wear Malachite in the time of COVID-19.
As winter releases its grip on Colorado, wear some green crystals to invoke spring and prosperity!
