MALACHITE

The name is probably derived from the green color (Greek-malache = mallow), perhaps from its low hardness (Greek-malakos= soft).  In fracture or when cut, aggregates show a banding of light and dark layers with concentric rings, straight stripes, or other figurative shapes caused by its shell-like formation.  Large mono-colored pieces are rare.  In thin plates, it is translucent, otherwise opaque.  The coloring agent is copper.  As rough stone, it has a weak vitreous or mat luster; on fresh fractures and when polished, it has a silky luster.  Malachite is sensitive to heat, acids, ammonia, and hot waters.

Malachite was popular with the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans for jewelry, amulets, and as a powder for eye shadow.  It is used as pigment for  mountain green.  Malachite is nowadays popular for jewelry and ornaments.
-Gemstones of the World- Walter Schumann

Metaphysical Properties:

Malachite is the "Stone of Transformation".  It draws out deep feelings of hurt and resentment, breaks unwanted ties and outworn patterns of behavior.  Clears and activates chakras, clarifies emotions, releases negative experiences.  Malachite aids responsibility for one's actions, thoughts, and feelings.  Absorbs plutonium pollution, guards against radiation.  Treats asthma, arthritis, fractures, swollen joints, growths, and tumors.  Aligns DNA and cellular structure, enhances immune system.
