Malachite is a copper mineral that is best known for its rich green color & banded crystal formations. Formed in copper deposits, it is often found with other minerals such as azurite & Chrysocolla. Most of the Malachite in the world comes from the Congo.
These little guys are so adorable! They are each hand carved & are very special in their own way. On some of the pieces you can see the bands from the dark saturation in the malachite. It is one of my goals to get a whole little heard of them.
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.
