what we've learned
Malachite is rich in history and in copper, of which accounts for 54% of the stones’ material in its purest state.
Malachite forms when copper weathers and crystalizes, often in micro-layers that thicken atop natural copper deposits. This means Malachite is basically a bunch of bumpy crystalized layers of rust that when sliced and polished, reveals the famous and decorative patterns that have been so fascinating to humans since ancient times. Aka Rust is a must.
Adored for its rich green hues, the color of Malachite in 4000 BC Egypt symbolized fertility and rebirth. Egyptians referred to their “Heaven” as the “Field of Malachite.” A place they thought would resemble Earthly lives, minus the suck.
Malachite is also associated with financial prosperity and businesses have long placed Malachite in their shop corners with the belief it will act as a magnet for attracting success.
Cultures in Medieval times believed Malachite jewelry that broke into pieces was a warning of great danger and therefore it was considered a protective stone (albeit a weak one).
Today we can use the supportive energy of Malachite to transmute rusty energy by cutting away that which has hardened us layer-by-layer so that we may reveal the beautiful bands our experiences have grown into and appreciate the abundance we’ve been sitting atop of the entire time
FYI: Things to Note
Please also note that the photos used in our product listings represent a portion of our inventory and unless otherwise stated, the item you receive may vary slightly in color, shape, size, and pattern– as each stone/crystal/mineral is unique and one of a kind.
Please note that we do not offer any products that have been heat-treated or color-treated. It’s not our thing. We’re strictly sellers of Earth-produced minerals and only sell what we believe in. We’re also mindfully particular about where and who we source crystals from and spend a ton of time procuring each specimen to ensure ethical alignment. We refuse to sell lab grown or questionable materials and specialize in limited items of low quality because we deserve nice things that are sourced in a safe, meaningful, and healthy way.
