What an amazing gemstone malachite is! The first culture to use malachite was ancient Egypt around 4,000 BC. The Egyptians used malachite as an ornamental stone in jewelry and art. Malachite also played an important role in European paintings during the Renaissance period of the 15th and 16th centuries as a pigment for paints and dyes.
Often believed that malachite is the essence of joy and is known as the "stone of transformation" because it helps reveal and heal emotional pain by absorbing the pain into itself. Overall, malachite is said to bring harmony into one's life. Wearing it can assist in the manifestation of the heart's desire and strengthen intuition.
