This little Malachite turtle is amazingly cute.  I feel my heart chakra opening whenever I hold it close. The swirling pattern on this turtle is enchanting to me and the best part is that this is a hand carved item. I appreciate the process and what it takes to hand carve different items, this Mala turtle is no exception. Malachite is believed to help open the heart chakra and assist us with tapping into deeper levels of love.  


Malachite is a copper mineral that is best known for its rich green color and banded crystal formations. Formed in copper deposits, it is often found with other minerals such as Azurite and Chrysocolla. Most of the malachite in the world comes from the Congo. Something to be aware of when handling malachite, is it releases toxic fumes when moist, so the bathroom is not a good place to keep it.


Another thing to keep in mind, is that it should never be used to make crystal elixirs or crystal water to be ingested! Don't be alarmed, this is not intended to scare you but to educate you! Malachite is totally safe to be used in many ways, with the exception of the two examples mentioned above.
