Malachite. Heart and Solar Plexus chakras. It is an excellent stone to strengthen the physical heart as well as the emotional aspect of the heart. One of the foremost stones for psychic protection. Having it within your aura promotes a strongly protective energy. This prevents negative psychic energy being able to come near you... and may prevent psychic attack.
