Malachite is a stone characterized by light and dark green banded areas that give it a unique, ornamental look unlike that of any other gemstone. Being a copper carbonate, malachite’s color resembles the greenish turquoise color found in the natural patina in copper. Throughout history people have come to believe that malachite possesses special powers for bringing about peace, love, success in life, and personal protection from harm. Many wear malachite as a means to detect any kind of danger coming their way, thinking that the malachite would break into pieces when danger arrived. This is why many refer to malachite as the “guardian stone”. This green crystal has been used since ancient times in inlay work and in carvings of churches and cathedrals. Our malachite is native to the Zaire and Congo regions of Africa.
