Malachite Tumbled Stones from South Africa
Big is certainly beautiful when it comes to these malachite crystals which were chosen during one of our many trips to South Africa. Boasting rich colour and distinctive markings, they're wonderfully tactile but being an ore of copper malachite must be handled carefully. Although its dust is toxic polished material poses little to no risk.
Malachite must not be used as an elixir which is water infused with natural minerals. If handling rough and dusty specimens it's good practice to wash your hands afterwards. Malachite tumbled stones may not be suitable for children in case they end up in their mouth. Stones should also not be allowed to come into contact with water.
When used for metaphysical purposes malachite is powerful so needs to be used carefully. It amplifies both positive and negative energy and can remove blocks that may be holding you back. A balancing and protective stone it can help release memories of past conflicts and traumas enabling you to look positively towards the future. It's a powerful cleanser of the emotional body and is often used for dreamwork or past life regression.
Associated with the heart chakra, malachite's radiating energy fields will clear blockages and bring all chakras into alignment. Working regularly with this stone can help overcome feelings of anger that may be lingering from a past relationship.
The rich green colour of malachite is stable and its use as a pigment can be traced back as far as 1500 BC. For this reason it can be cleansed in direct sunlight, under the light of a full mon or alternatively use a singing bowl. It should not be allowed to get wet because of its toxicity. The high copper content in malachite is the reason for it being such a strong conductor of energy.
Malachite which is mined in or around copper mines frequently occurs with the minerals azurite, goethite and calcite. It's soft and porous so needs to be handled with care.
