The name Malachite may come from the Greek word malakee or malache, signifying the resemblance of Mallow leaves, or from the Greek word malakos, meaning soft. Being a carbonate of copper, Malachite is sometimes intergrown with Azurite, forming Malachite-Azurite, or with Chrysocolla, forming Malachite-Chrysocolla.
Inherent in Malachite are lighter green eye-shaped forms or bands on its surface. These “eye stones,” believed to enhance great visionary powers, were used to ward off negative happenings. On of Malachite’s mystic purviews is the ability to foretell impending disaster, by breaking into pieces. Also known to protect against the Evil Eye, witchcraft and spirits, Malachite is a powerful cleanser for the emotional body, releasing past life trauma or childhood trauma.
Malachite clears and activates the chakras and attunes to spiritual guidance. It opens the heart to unconditional love. Encourages risk-taking and change, breaks unwanted ties and outworn patterns, and teaches how to take responsibility for one’s actions, thoughts and feelings.
