Malachite, single piece

Malachite, i.e. alkaline copper carbonate, is a strong green mineral formed as a result of the transformation of copper ores. The name malachite comes from the Greek words "malāchē lithos" (Μολοχίτης λίθος), a mallow-colored stone. The green color of the mineral resembled the shade of the leaves of the mallow plant. Malachite is a dense, finely crystalline mineral that often occurs in round, kidney-like formations, aggregates. Size about 69mm x 39mm x 35mm. Weight about 95g.

Symbol meaning

Malachite has been valued for thousands of years. It has been praised by Egyptians, Greeks and Romans alike. Malachite was used to make protective amulets, jewelry and decorative items. In ancient Egypt, the color green (wadj) was associated with death, resurrection, new life, vegetation and fertility. The Egyptians believed that after death they would enter a paradise called the "fields of malachite," which greatly resembled the world of the living, but without want and suffering. Malachite was believed to ward off negative forces and cure eye diseases. Probably because of this, ground malachite was also used as an eye shadow. Malachite is believed by some people to be still evolving, and will be one of the most important healing stones of the new millennium. They also consider malachite useful in scrying or to access other wolds.

Ritual use

In ancient Greece, generals wore malachite bracelets and rings while leading their famous battles. They were convinced that malachite would help them achieve victory. The French Marbodus recommended children and young people to use malachite as a talisman to ensure a good night's sleep. In 17th-century Spain, it was believed that a malachite amulet worn around a child's neck protected the child while he was sleeping and kept evil spirits away. In the Middle Ages, it was believed that wearing malachite around the neck eased toothache. Over the centuries, malachite has been believed to protect against witches, lightning strikes, stomach ailments, and curses, and to attract success, luck, and worldly riches.

Attention! Malachite may contain toxic copper carbonate. Handle the raw stone with care and avoid breathing dust or exposing it to your skin. Keep unpolished malachite out of the reach of children and pets.
