Malachite On Custom Stand -Partial Polished From Congo | Rare Earth Gallery

This Green Goddess from the Congo is Malachite, Partially Polished, on a Custom Stand. The Unique Partial Polish shows this Malachite's Stunning Features. This partially polished malachite specimen on a custom designed and crafted metal stand is truly natures trophy. The first culture to use malachite for adornment was ancient Egypt around 4,000 BC. The Egyptians used malachite as an ornamental stone in jewelry and art. The stone was imported from King Solomon's infamous copper mines on the Red Sea. Archeologists have found Egyptian tomb paintings using malachite gemstones that had been ground into paint that colored the walls. It was also ground into a fine dust and mixed with galena, a thick paste used to make kohl, on slate palettes to be painted onto eyelids as a cosmetic and talisman against evil. Vivid green malachite kohl is believed to be Cleopatra's favorite cosmetic, and she was buried with a large vase of it for use in her afterlife.
