African Malachite Stone Sphere Rock

Lovely green African Malachite material. The material came from the Katanga Mine in the Congo, Africa.

Malachite is a copper carbonate. It has a hardness between 3.5 and 4. It crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system, and most often forms botryoidal, fibrous, or stalagmitic masses. This material is found in the oxidation zone of major copper deposits.

This stone's name is from the Greek, malache, - "mallow" in reference to its green leaf color.

This sphere is 1.5 inch or 38 mm in diameter. Hand crafted and not a perfect sphere.

Metaphysical Properties: Malachite is a very protective stone, being especially helpful for general protection, protection from evil, protection during pregnancy and childbirth, and protection for children. It is also an excellent protection stone during flying and other travel. Using this stone, one can counteract self-destructive romantic tendencies and help encourage true, pure love. Malachite is also good for enhancing emotional stability and balance in general.
