what is a Manalishi (as mentioned in the Fleetwood Mac song Green Manalishi)?

I heard it in the Judas Priest song "the Green Manalishi" (a Fleetwood Mac cover), and i want to know what it is, or if it's just a nonsense word. the only google hits i can find are the song(s) or things which refer back to them.

  • Hope this helps:

    Green was struggling with LSD and had withdrawn from other members of the band. "Faced with the band's refusal to give away all monetary gains, Peter Green decided to leave Fleetwood Mac, but not before writing the haunting 'Green Manalishi,' which seems to document his struggle to stop his descent into madness."[1] While there are several rumours about the meaning of the title "Green Manalishi", one referencing a mysterious LSD drug called "Green Manalishi" associated with the drug scene of the 1960s and 1970s, Green has always maintained that the song is about money, as represented by the devil.
