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
These are very beautiful beads. They have random swirls of a darker green, but that makes them more interesting!

Holes slightly too big
These are synthetic but not dyed. (I soaked one in acetone and the color didn't fade.) Saturated color with beautiful contrast between the green and black coloring. I deducted a star because the holes are wider than other Jewelry Supply beads listed as 1mm hole width. The 8mm nylon thread is too narrow for these; the beads slide right over the knots. I wish Jewelry Supply carried the green nylon in 9mm or 10mm.
