Malachite ~ Such Beauty in a Green Stone

Updated on September 10, 2014

Malachite Green for Anyone

What a gorgeous mineral stone, Malachite, such a natural beauty. The name given to this stone is derived from French, English and Greek names meaning "Mallow Green Stone". Green has become my favorite color in my "older" years!

It is found deep beneath the earth and lucky for us, they can mine it and make it into all sorts of beautiful objects. It also has a high content of copper, which is believed to have healing properties for many. It's distinctive striping makes each piece an individual beauty.

My favorite is the malachite jewelry, which is very becoming, and would make a special gift for someone for St Patrick's Day, or just about any time of the year! Or you can also find some other great possibilities, such as paper weights, soap rocks, tumbled malachite rocks for any use, and even a sliced stalactite which would be great as a conversation piece.

(Legend says that if you are not wearing green on St Patty's Day a Leprechaun will pinch you! So protect the ones you love with some Malachite!)
