Malachite is a carbonate mineral of copper, which as you probably know is great at conducting energy. Malachite has been used by ancient cultures as a very transformative stone including the Ancient Egyptians, who used the power of malachite to effect great change within their physical bodies, believing it helped to heal at the cellular level. They used it in jewelry & carved ornaments out of it. With its green colors, It is associated with the heart chakra (energy center) in the body but also said to help cleanse and clear all chakras. It is thought that the more bullseyes a piece has the more powerful it can be energetically.
This particular piece is from the earth in The Democratic Republic of the Congo & was polished all the weigh around, with some parts left raw on the bottom. It weighs 7oz & measures ~ 2.5 X 2 X .5 inches. It can also stand on end, which I love.
IMPORTANT: Keep this stone dry! Do not bathe with it our create gem elixirs with it. The high copper content is not safe to drink or bathe in.
