Malachite features beautiful designs in which the bands of lighter and darker green come together to produce swirls and patterns of unequal beauty in the gemstone world. Each piece is entirely unique. The main sources of malachite are Africa and the Ural Mountains of Russia.
Malachite was used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians. The Russian Czars prized malachite, some even had rooms that were made with malachite walls, columns, and fireplaces. Some believe that malachite can revitalize the body and mind when worn, and that it can help your adventurous side. It may also help stimulate the brain to promote the power of your imagination and enable you to become more decisive.
