Malachite is known as “the stone of transformation” because it helps reveal and heal emotional pain by absorbing the pain into itself.
Malachite activates the chakras and opens the heart to unconditional love. The copper content is 57%, which makes it toxic. Long term use isn’t advised. Polished malachite is often better to handle than its natural form.
