But before diving into our beautiful collection, let’s have a closer look at the malachite stone and its properties.
What Is Malachite?
Malachite (pronounced mal-uh-kite) is a stone that features concentric bands or rings of different shades of green. The word originates from the ancient Greek word for the herb mallow, which has deep green leaves.
Raw malachite is formed by a chemical reaction between rocks containing copper ore and dioxide carbonated water or dissolved carbonate minerals. In short, this magnificent stone is found in oxidized copper ore.
The Urals region in Russia has been a rich source of this stunning stone. It has also been found throughout Africa, particularly in the Congo, Gabon, Zambia, and Namibia. Australia and Mexico are other locations where this stone has been discovered.
For centuries, malachite stone has been used to make jewelry and carved ornaments and decorations. This opaque stone is soft enough for jewelers to work with and cut into various shapes. Malachite properties are ideal for jewelry. It’s durable for everyday wear but should be treated gently and stored carefully to avoid scratching.
A Colorful History
The ancient Egyptians mined this stunning stone as long ago as 4,000 BC. They made malachite rings, malachite necklaces, and decorative ornaments. They also crushed it to use as a pigment to dye paint and make-up.
Disclaimer: We do not advise trying it at home. Malachite is dangerous in powder form.
One of the most famous examples of this gorgeous stone is in St. Petersburg’s Winter Palace. Completed in 1762, the Baroque palace was designed to outdo the most lavish palaces of Europe. The Malachite Room is one of its highlights.
This former state drawing room is dazzling. Brilliant green malachite columns with ornate gold bases and capitals line the walls. The room features elaborately detailed gold doors beneath a magnificent ceiling with an intricate design in gold. A table, vases, ornaments, and even the fireplace mantle are made of rich green stone.

The Palace of Versailles also has a Malachite Room. It houses the malachite vases and sculptures Tsar Alexander I gave to Napoleon.
Likewise, malachite jewelry was very popular in Victorian England. People wore many different opaque stones in jewelry, but malachite necklaces were among the most popular.
What Does Malachite Stone Mean?
This amazing stone is known as a stone of transformation. The rich green color is linked to nature, renewal, and growth. The concentric bands of different shades of green symbolize our potential to grow and change throughout our lives.
Transformation, renewal, protection, healing, and spiritual growth
In the spiritual realm, protection, healing, and spiritual growth are also among the malachite benefits. It is said to absorb negative energy, protecting its wearer from other people’s negativity. It also shields its holder from self-destructive or overly critical impulses.
Malachite’s healing properties are associated with the heart chakra. This chakra deals with really feeling your emotions and working through them.
This is a wonderful stone for anyone working through any heartbreak – whether it is a relationship break-up, the loss of a loved one, the end of a job, or any other major disappointment.
A malachite necklace is a beautiful way to support a friend who is going through some painful loss and growth. The malachite stone meaning can also be a good reminder to yourself to embrace life changes and keep negativity at bay.
