Brief Description: Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral. Malachite is typically found as tiny fibrous crystal crusts or banded polished specimens. Tumble polished or carved specimens often display concentric rings or bobbles, whilst the fibrous forms are like a velvet rich green carpet. Malachite often occurs with Azurite or Chrysocolla. Malachite is used in the jewellery trade and carved into fine specimens of art.

Mythology:  Malachite was used as a mineral pigment in green paints from antiquity until about 1800. The pigment is moderately lightfast, very sensitive to acids, and varying in color. The natural form was being replaced by its synthetic form, verditer, among other synthetic greens. It is also used for decorative purposes, such as in the Malachite Room in the Hermitage, which features a huge malachite vase, and the Malachite Room in Castillo de Chapultepec in Mexico City. "The Tazza", a large malachite vase, one of the largest pieces of malachite in North America and a gift from Tsar Nicholas II, stands as the focal point in the center of the room of Linda Hall Library. Archeological evidence indicates that the mineral has been mined and smelted at Timna Valley in Israel for over 3,000 years.Since then, malachite has been used as both an ornamental stone and as a gemstone.

Usage: Malachite is a protection stone, absorbing negative energies and pollutants from the atmosphere and from the body. It guards against radiation of all kinds, clears electromagnetic pollution and heals earth energies. Keep near microwaves in the kitchen and televisions in living areas. In the workplace Malachite protects against noise, over-bright fluorescent lighting, and harmful rays from technological equipment, negative phone calls and emails. As a stone of travel, Malachite protects and overcomes fears of flying if you empower the crystal before a trip by holding it and envisioning yourself in the wings of the Archangel, Raphael. It helps with jet lag, encourages smooth business travel, and protects in travel on congested highways. Malachite is known for being a stone of support for airplane and airline workers as a protection against accidents, miners for protection from unexplained accidents, and for secretaries to stimulate clear thinking.

Metaphysical Properties: Malachite provides for spiritual maturation and supports transformation. Malachite is highly protective. Malachite can help reveal causes of dis-ease and provide answers to maintaining health. Malachite assists in acceptance of responsibility, whilst accelerating intuitive reasoning and progression. Malachite promotes loyalty, fidelity and friendships. Malachite relieves cold sweats, malaria, trembling and Parkinson's disease, and helps with asthma, intestinal problems and rheumatic pain. It is a diuretic stone and can help cure kidney and gallstones. It fights osteoarthritis, most notably in the spine, and strengthens memory, especially for those with short-term memory loss who forget the names of people right after hearing them.

Healing Properties: Malachite can be used in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism and swollen joints. Malachite is helpful in treating asthma and balances the immune system. Malachite can assist in easing childbirth and for treating reproductive disorders. Malachite can help to lower blood pressure. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. You may well find yourself having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli. Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the heart chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly. We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.
