Malachite is a well known mineral which boasts rich green colour and distinctive markings which make it relatively easy to identify. Mined in or around copper mines, it frequently occurs with the minerals azurite, goethite and calcite and its use as a pigment in paint can be traced back as far as 1500 BC. Surprisingly its colour is fairly resilient and doesn't fade when exposed to bright light but one thing to be aware of is that malachite is a soft stone that's also porous so it must be treated with care. On Mohs scale of mineral hardness malachite grades 3½ - 4.
When used for the purpose of crystal healing malachite is considered to be a powerful cleanser of the emotional body and it's said that it has the ability to release past life or childhood trauma and suppressed feelings. Its high copper content makes it a powerful conductor of energy, it amplifies positive energy and helps disperse negativity and ingrained patterns of behaviour. It's also said to protect against the evil eye, witchcraft and bad spirits.
