A breath-taking green stone usually with green bands and green rings running through/around it (basically green with more green). The green is caused by copper. This one is ancient and the history of it being used goes back thousands of years. Worn by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks for various magical uses such as protective talismans, on headdresses and used for healing. It has even been used to decorate the inside of grand houses. The name derives from the Greek word ‘malakos’ which translates as ‘soft’. Although personally I think it needs a name that translates to mean ‘green’… It is said that malachite can warn of danger by breaking into pieces.
