Malachite is a beautiful, green, semi-precious stone. It is a carbonate mineral. It crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system, and most often forms botryoidal, fibrous, or stalagmitic. Individual crystals are rare, but do occur as slender to acicular prisms. Pseudomorphs after more tabular or blocky azurite crystals also occur. Malachite often results from weathering of copper ores and is often found together with azurite (Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2 ,a blue secondary mineral of copper), goethite , and calcite . Malachite can be found in Russia, Zaire, Australia, and Namibia. In the United States, specimens have been found in the copper mines of Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.
