What Is Malachite Made Of?

Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, often found in limestone deposits (the carbon source) alongside azurite and other minerals.

Deep inside caves, Malachite usually forms in botryoidal (grape-like) clusters or as stalactites

Although similar in patterning to many Agates, Malachite is not a form of Agate. 

This green semi precious stone is often polished to form stunning green gemstones.

Where Does Malachite Come From?

Malachite can be found in locations worldwide, including Arizona in the USA, and Australia. 

This piece was sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of the most important modern suppliers of Malachite.

Malachite History

Malachite, along with Lapis Lazuli, is one of the oldest stones known to human civilisation, and was used in many ancient cultures worldwide.

Malachite In Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt, Malachite was particularly revered as a stone representing life, death, and re-birth

Malachite was also spiritually important in the Middle Ages, and was crafted into talismans to ward off evil spirits, to protect the wearer, and to help children sleep.

Malachite Decorative Uses

Malachite historically has been a popular stone to craft into gemstones and jewellery, owing to its striking colours and patterns.

Malachite was particularly popular in Russia in the 19th century, where it was heavily mined from the Ural Mountains and used by tsars to decorate their opulent palaces with furniture sculpted from the stone.

The most famous example of this is perhaps the aptly named Malachite Room of the Winter Palace, in St Petersburg, Russia.

Malachite Industry Uses

the past, Malachite was an important copper ore used to produce copper metal: however Malachite is not so commonly used industrially anymore.

For this reason, Malachite is a great stone for those interested in boosting their personal development, as well as their connection to nature.

In Feng Shui, Malachite embodies the spirit of wood energy: regeneration, rejuvenation, and nourishment.

Malachite Chakras

Malachite is strongly associated with the Heart Chakra: this stone exudes a gentle, loving energy that nurtures compassion for others and self-love. 

Peaceful and tranquil like the leaves it resembles, Malachite is a wonderful stress-reliever.

How Hard Is Malachite?

Measuring 3.5 to 4 on the Mohs scale, Malachite is a relatively soft mineral and great care should be taken whilst handling and storing it to ensure its surface does not become damaged.
