Malachite has a distinctive, graphic look that is like no other stone. This banded bright green mineral is most often found in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and forms in bubbly botryoidal layers. Polished flat, these layers form concentric bands of varying shades of green. Malachite's distinctive look will add an air of funky and creative color to your jewelry ensemble.


PHYSICAL: Malachite is a secondary copper bearing carbonate mineral, and forms in contact zones in copper deposits. Malachite often forms as a secondary mineralization after azurite and other copper minerals, as a pseudomorph. Prominent deposits include DRC, Peru, Laos, Thailand, Morocco, and more.
HEALING: Malachite is associated with leadership, enlightened decisionmaking, protection, and heart healing. It is connected to the element of fire, and the 4th chakra (heart).

Care for gemstones in sterling silver jewelry: 

As with all natural stones set in silver, these jewelry pieces should be removed when taking a shower, swimming, or entering a hot springs. Water (especially hot water) can damage natural materials and even cause settings to fail. This is especially true with gemstone rings!

*Though many gems and minerals have historical and cultural associations with healing properties, these items are sold for wear in jewelry, display, study, and collector interest only.
