For so, so long I had been hoping to add a piece of malachite to my crystal babies. And guess what? I found it! I found it! I found my own very special little piece.
I remember malachite from the time of my first fascination with rocks and minerals when I was a small child. I loved the color, and I loved the beautiful swirl patterns in it. Malachite is a secondary copper mineral, and its deep green color is caused by the copper within it.
The high copper content in malachite is the reason for its pulsing electromagnetic energy field. It is a powerful protection stone that absorbs negativity and environmental pollutants. Because of its ability to soak up negative energies, malachite must be cleansed frequently.
It activates all chakras, especially the heart. Here are some of its associations with the chakras:
-On the solar plexus, it facilitates emotional healing and balances the heart and sacral chakras. Place it on the solar plexus to absorb negative emotions.
-On the heart, it promotes greater harmony and balance.
-On the heart and throat, it promotes the physical health of the heart.
-On the third eye, it activates the intuition and enhances insight, helping the individual to see clearly what is impeding spiritual growth.
For its properties of protection and increased insight, malachite is known as a stone of transformation. It is an excellent companion for anyone who is in a period of great change in their lives. It facilitates the ‘rebirth’ process.
So, can I get a ‘yay, malachite!’ now?
Welcome to the crew, malachite. I think you’re going to fit in just fine… ♥
