The Congo and Zambia are home to some of the largest copper mines on earth; all of our malachite is sourced from these regions.

Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, which is formed above copper deposits when copper minerals are chemically altered. The stone’s color can vary from a deep blue Azurite Malachite to light green or very dark green, almost appearing black. It is well-known for its patterning of “eyes” and unique banding.

Malachite is considered a protective stone as it is said to absorb any negative energy around it. For that reason, it must be “cleansed” often when used in spiritual practice. Its properties correspond best with the heart and throat chakras.
