Malachite is a bright green crystal with swirls of deeper, darker green throughout. It is opaque, with a glassy, silky luster. In its natural form, Malachite may appear dull and earth-toned or velvety and fibrous.
Malachite is a stone of balance, abundance, manifestation and intention. Malachite absorbs energy and draws emotions to the surface. It clears and activates all Chakras, and is especially helpful in the stimulation of the Heart and Throat Chakras. An extremely powerful metaphysical stone, Malachite is often called the “stone of transformation” and is used for deep energy cleaning, bringing healing and positive transformation to the wearer. For this reason, many metaphysicians recommend using Malachite in small doses.
Malachite amplifies energies of all kinds, both positive and negative. One of the most important healing stones, Malachite helps the user acknowledge, draw out, and discharge negative energy, including old emotional patterns, past traumas, and suppressed feelings. Malachite’s ability to draw out negative energy can assist in discovering the energy blocks and patterns that may be causing physical disease.
Highly protective, Malachite absorbs pollution, purifies, and shields against radioactivity. Malachite can be useful in easing menstrual cramps and childbirth. Use Malachite on the Third-Eye to facilitate psychic vision, while Malachite held on the Heart Chakra will bring balance and fidelity to relationships with other people.
Physically, Malachite is a wonderful equalizing and balancing agent. It protects against radiation and has been used in the treatment of asthma, arthritis, swollen joints, broken bones and torn muscles.
Note: Malachite absorbs negative energy easily, but holds it within the stone until it is cleaned, so it is important to clear your Malachite often. Do not use salt to clear polished Malachite as it will damage the finish. Malachite is toxic, do not ingest.

|My brother’s name is Malachi. He’s 17 I’m 22 anyway in all his life he has never done me wrong, not once. He talks to me every day, we vent and laugh, and he’s my favorite person. I just got a Malachite polished crystal and I’ve been looking for one for 3 years. I love it so much. ???? (Submitted by: Shake on March 17, 2021)|

|I found out I had a nodule in my thyroid. It was inoperable, so I made a small Malachite ring & wore it on my left hand. After my biopsy, 6 mon later I went to have a check on it.. It was totally gone! They couldnt find the nodule! This was baffling to the docs bc they dont go away. You either have them or the thyroid removed! LOVE MALACHITE!
