Metaphysical: "Mirror of the Soul" , Protects, Balances
Malachite is believed to be a strong protector of children. It is said to protect the wearer from accidents and protects travelers. It has been used to aid success in business and protect against undesirable business associations. It is a stone of balance in relationships.Malachite activates the solar plexus chakra, which enhances one's willpower.
This is a stone that should not be used for physical healing.
Malachite has been called the "mirror of the soul". It is variable in its condition. It reaches the inner feelings of the person and reflects what is there, negative or positive. It is so beautiful that one would like to wear it in jewelry, but caution must be used when wearing Malachite. It will always reflect how you feel, if you feel negative don't wear Malachite. It is a reminder stone, it reveals the fact that we have a dual nature and it is up to each person to know and rule his own person. To help protect against nightmares, use a piece of copper approximately the same size of your malachite, or if that is unavailable, place seven small pieces in a small circle with the malachite in the center.
It harmonizes well with Tiger Eye for physical energy and protection, and with Morganite for balancing the heart chakra. Its strength is increased when used with copper.
Malachite also works well with other copper minerals: Azurite, Ajoite, Chrysocolla, Shattuckite, Turquoise.
The following specimens are from mines in Katanga ( Shaba ) Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The crystal specimens are beautiful. We've carried fibrous, tumbled, boytroidal crystals with chrysocolla, but these are the first we've seen with such large crystals.
The matrix is Dolomite and Ankerite.
