Malachite Polished Sphere | Rare Earth Gallery

Malachite Polished Sphere

Malachite is usually found in opaque green masses, its color derived

from copper, as a secondary mineral. Found in the vast rainforests of the

Congo in Africa; the moisture allows copper to oxidize most easily into

the surrounding stone. Chatoyant (fibirous) crystals are too small for

faceting, but the light bending quality leaves one in awe. The massive

material can be carved or polished in many ways to reveal the alternating

bands of light & dark green. In the past, malachite was worn to ward off

danger & illness. Exhibition of botryoidal “eyes” formation, the layers

represent an introspective stone.


As each piece is unique and one of a kind, please allow for variations in size, shape, and color of the stone that you receive. We guarantee the authenticity of this gemstone. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
