This is a stunning, eyecatching stone and may well have been mined in Egypt as early as 4000 BC. Many cultures throughout history have prized this stone and in the past it has been used for making protective amulets. The vibrant colour comes from copper ore deposits.

Malachite is a powerful stone. It absorbs negative energy and is a stone of transformation. Life is lived more intensely under its influence. It draws out deep feelings and breaks unwanted ties and outworn patterns. It is also said to release inhibitions and enhance intuition and insight.
