Tidbit: Malachite is a stone that gets its name from the Greek word 'malakos' which means soft. It's green color comes from the weathering of the copper ores that comprise it.
Malachite Attributes: It is a stone of protection and transformation. It can easily absorb negative energies from your body and the environment around you, and for this reason it should be cleansed after using it. A good way to do this is to put it on a quartz cluster in the sun. Placed on the third eye, it can activate visualization and psychic vision. When placed on the heart, it brings balance and harmony allowing for an opening to unconditional love. And when placed on the Solar Plexus it facilitates deep emotional healing.
