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.
