Malachite Healing Crystals
Big is certainly beautiful when it comes to these malachite healing crystals which we sourced locally in South Africa. Boasting rich green colour and distinctive markings, they're wonderfully tactile but it's important to remember malachite is an ore of copper so it's toxic. For this reason stones should never be used as an elixir which is water that's been infused with minerals. Rough and dusty specimens of malachite should always be handled carefully.
Polished malachite is completely safe to handle and poses little to no risk at all but crystals should not be placed in the mouth or 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 so must be cleansed regularly. A balancing and protective stone it can help one move on from past conflicts and traumas. It's a powerful cleanser of the emotional body which can be useful for releasing past life or childhood traumas and suppressed feelings.
Malachite is associated with the heart chakra and its radiating energy fields have the ability to clear blockages and bring all chakras into alignment. Working with the stone regularly can help overcome feelings of jealousy whilst also addressing issues of anger that may be lingering from a past relationship.
The unmistakable green colour of malachite is stable and its use as a pigment in paint 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.
The high copper content in malachite is the reason for it being such a strong conductor of energy. Known as a stone of transformation, it helps introduce energy and focus to new projects along with the determination to see them through.
