Malachite is a copper carbonate with bands of two or more shades of green throughout. Malachite is derived from the Greek word “malache” (herb). The characteristic green in malachite is actually made up of copper, with the amount of water in the specimen affecting the intensity of the color. More water will make the green lighter; less water makes the green more intense. Total absence of water will make Malachite black! Legend says that Malachite is a cure for convulsions, and has been used as a talisman for children to ward off evil sprits. Holding Malachite is said to calm the nervous system. Malachite can be easily scratched and is very fragile. Washing Malachite will remove its protective polish and can be damaged by acids. It is found in Zaire, Chile, Australia, France, England and Arizona.

Customer Reviews
Very realistic appearance
The color and look is very much like true malachite. Good quality of stones. I use many different types of precious stones in my jewelry making and was disappointed to see that only the synthetic malachite was offered. Even though true malachite is not very expensive. The quality is good and I will definitely use them. Although I can only promote the pieces I create from these stones as synthetic.

These are very beautiful little beads, good quality too. They are very pretty green with random stripes of a darker green. So pretty!
