History & Origin:

Malachite is copper carbonate hydroxide mineral with a vivid emerald hue, & one of the first ores used to produce copper metal. It can be found above copper deposits deep in the earth in various locations around the world, such as the Ural Mountains of Russia, Congo, Gabon, Zambia, Namibia, USA, Mexico & Australia. First reported in 1747 by J.G. Wallerius, Malachite gets its name from either the Greek word malhe, meaning grass (in reference to its green colour), malakhê, meaning mallow, or malakos, meaning soft. The Egyptians used Malachite as far back as 4,000 BC as an ornamental stone in jewellery & art, mining this mineral from deposits near the Isthmus of Suez & the Sinai. Its power as a talisman against evil was harnessed by the Egyptian people through cosmetics, grinding the mineral into a paste & painting it upon their eyelids. This vivid emerald kohl is famously believed to have been worn by Cleopatra herself. Furthermore, Ancient Egyptians believed that the afterlife contained an eternal paradise, referred to as the “Field of Malachite”, which resembled their lives without pain or suffering. This stone’s royal beauty was also admired by Russian czars & was notably used as mineral pigment in green paints during the Renaissance. Malachite has long been held as a symbol of protection & superstition, & its eye-like rings are thought to ward off the ‘evil eye.’
