MALACHITE is a copper carbonate mineral with a monodinic crystal system and a hardness of 3.5 to 4. Its name comes from the Greek word for its color, malache (mallow). Good Malachite is found in Russia and Africa.
Malachite is one of the most important stones for protection from negative energies. It permeates the auric field with positive vibrations and strengthens the natural energetic “shell’ which can screen out hostile forces, and it activates the “psychic radar” with which one feels the presence of danger. It even accentuates the sort of protection in which synchronicties seem to conspire to keep one safe. Malachite emanates the healthiest energy patterns for the heart. It assists one in maintaining emotional balance, and it offer an enhanced ability to see and avoid one’s own emotional pitfalls. The solar plexus chakra is stimulated by Malachite, enhancing ones willpower. In the presence of Malachite, it is easier to refuse temptations. Malachite instills confidence and responsibility and is useful in making spiritual progress through right action. Malachite harmonizes with Tiger Eye for physical energy and protection, and with Morganite for balancing the heart chakra. It also works easily with other copper – based minerals, such as Azurite, Turquoise, Shattuckite, Chrysocolla and Ajoite.
