Bowenite, also called Tangiwaite or Tangawaite, is the state mineral of Rhode Island. It is often incorrectly referred to as Jade. In truth, it is more accurately identified as a variety of the serpentine mineral, Antigorite and a close relation to Jade (but NOT Jade). High grade Bowenite can be considered a semi-precious stone as it has a transparent to semi-transparent appearance and is usually a much higher grade of material.
Used as a talisman or worn as an amulet, Bowenite protects from destructive forces by facilitating a protective energy shield that radiates in all directions. Bowenite is a dream stone. It enhances the memory of dreams and helps in dream-solving. Bowenite can also help to release suppressed emotions via the dream process.
Bowenite can bring success to all pursuits or to make a clean break from past traumas/environments. This stone is a true symbol of love, friendship and thankfulness.
