Heishi (pronounced "hee shee") are small disc- or tube-shaped beads made of organic shells or ground and polished stones. ... The name is the word for shell bead in the Eastern Keresan language of the Santo Domingo Indians.

Affectionately referred to as the “Stone of Heaven” by the Chinese, jade has long been considered to be the quintessential green jade gemstone. Derived from the Spanish word “piedra da ijada” meaning “stone of the flank,” jade is believed to bestow the wearer with many virtues, notably wisdom, purity, long life, and good health.
