About Malachite

Malachite  has swirling patterns of light and dark green, this stone has come to represent sensuality and beauty. It has been described by poets as spring grass swaying in the wind.

Ancient Egypt was one of the first to wear and make art out of malachite, around 4,000 BC. Archeologist have found that malachite was ground to powder and used as paint to color Egytian tomb paintings. It was also ground and used as cosmetics and was believed to be Cleopatras favorite.  She was even buried with a large vase of it to use in her afterlife.

During the Renaissance period Malachite was also used as paint and it is thought that many of the green colors in Michelango's Sistine Chapel were from malachite based oil paints.

During the Victorian times Malachite was dangled from baby cribs to keep evil and bay and to help with peaceful sleep.
