Greenstone has chlorite in it, and it is safely worn. The practical side of me says there is a reason people don't wear chlorite,and I cannot in good conscience say it is safe to wear. I simply do not know. Some chlorite like sodium chlorite is a strong base and is basically bleach. Unless someone with greater knowledge comes forward, I cannot enlighten you about it generally.. play it safe until then.
