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 considered a protective stone as it is said to absorb any negative energy around it. Its properties correspond best with the heart and throat chakras.
Malachite is a stone 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.
