Big really is beautiful when it comes to these AAA grade malachite tumbled stones, imported by Stone Mania from South Africa and available for retail and wholesale purchase.
Malachite is an unmistakable rich green coloured mineral with distinctive banding which makes it a relatively easy stone to identify. Mined in or around copper mines, it frequently occurs with azurite, goethite and calcite and due to its magnificent colour, was used as a pigment for paint for hundreds of years. Surprisingly the colour is fairly resilient and doesn't fade when exposed to bright light but malachite is very soft and also porous so it must be treated with care. On Mohs scale of mineral hardness malachite grades just 3½ - 4.
In crystal healing malachite is considered to be a powerful cleanser of the emotional body and it's said it has the ability to release past-life or childhood trauma and suppressed feelings. Life is lived more intensely under its influence and 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 an important stone for protection which absorbs pollutants from both the environment and the body and it's said to protect against the evil eye, witchcraft and bad spirits.
