Metaphysically, Malachite is a stone of transformation & brings positive transformation again & again. Malachite also assists in making these transformation changes with a gentleness of the heart, easing the transition from one state to the other. As a stone of transformation, Malachite helps with spiritual evolution. Meditation or intentional use of this stone in spiritual practices can bring along heightened & pervasive spiritual growth.
