A psychic gave this stone to me years ago... and i am not sure what it is and what it is suspose to help me with.
Can anyone help me?

Looks like a Jade stone to me, but there isn't enough light in the pic to tell for sure. Could you retake with a little more light?

I can't quite make out in the picture if it has reddish markings - if it does, I think it's bloodstone.
Could also be verdite, soapstone, or jade.

Looks like Malachite. A good grounding, earthy stone to me :)

could also be nefrite...

Yes, I agree with Rostie - nephrite jade.

I also thought bloodstone or nephrite jade but as you can`t really tell what the colour is from the pic it`s very hard to tell.

Love and light

thank you all... i guess i will have to find a shop here in town.
I know it is not bloodstone.. it has extra patches of green, not red.
I thought it might be GREEN AVENTURINE or PREHNITE depending on what picture is on the net.

Thank you for your help.

My piece of prehnite is a much paler green. My aventurines are about the color of the stone in the picture. Aventurine also tends to be evenly colored and often has sparkles of mica or pyrite bits. To me, the stone in the picture seems to be a medium green, marbled with streaks of darker green. I'll put in my vote for jade also, especially if it is opaque.

It look like a blessing jade from Buddha. Anyway it should be a good jade you bring along with you anywhere you go to bless you. An aventurine has a light but dull colour.

Hi all,
Does it has a sheen to it almost like a snake skin when the light hits it? Does it also have lines that look like cracks in it? If so, then it could be labradorite.

I love Labradorite! This looks a little too dark to be that, though, most Labs are translucent to a certain degree. Love that peacock sheen!

My first impression was a jade, but it could be a non-bloody bloodstone. Is there any rock & gem shop in your city? They can identify it for you. OR the mineral/rock guys over at any museum (call ahead, they love when the public comes in, even for something simple).
