MALACHITE - CONGO
“Gem with the Mirror into the Soul”
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.
