Healing Properties of Malachite

Top 3 Benefits of Malachite

  1. Protection from negativity & danger
  2. Boosts willpower and confidence
  3. Strengthens boundaries

Malachite is a protective and empowering stone. Like a best friend who always has your back, malachite is always there, supporting you to believe in yourself and make good decisions to take care of yourself.

Malachite Helps Protect You

Malachite’s protective quality makes you more alert to danger, and supports you to take precautionary measures. It enhances synchronicities that can help keep you out of harm’s way.

It protects you from abuse of power by enhancing your ability to discern attempts to cross your boundaries, and giving you the clarity and courage to stand your ground.

Malachite Boosts Personal Power & Resilience

Malachite is strengthening to your will and confidence. If you struggle to make decisions or set boundaries with others or to take care of yourself, malachite can boost your internal sense of power and determination.

It can help people who feel fragile because of past traumas or abuse to overcome fear and recover their inner resilience. If you struggle with fear, overwhelm, or an inability to stand up for yourself or pursue the things that make you happy, malachite can help you break through limitations and create the life that works for you.

Malachite Mineral & Gemstone Information

Malachite is an opaque, green copper ore with distinctive banding patterns. It has been mined for thousands of years to extract copper. It is often found near or combined with azurite, another copper ore. It is created from a chemical reaction between copper and limestone.

Malachite was used as a green pigment in paint before the creation of synthetic dyes, and has been made into decorative objects and talismans since ancient times.

As a relatively soft mineral (Mohs scale 3.5-4), malachite jewelry and crystals should be treated with care. It should not be heated or exposed to acids or ultrasonic cleaners.

Safety warning: Do not use malachite to make crystal elixirs or place it it in bathwater, because it can release copper into the water which would be toxic if ingested.
