Malachite Stone Brooch
Here is a beautiful Malachite Stone on a gold tone brooch.
The name “Malachite” comes from the Greek word 'Malakos', which implies 'soft' or 'mellow green colour' – as in the Mallow plant. According to another theory the word malachite comes from the Greek malhe, which means 'grass' – another indication that this refers to the green colour or green bands of this mineral. Malachite gemstones are broken down, carved, cut and polished from the mineral masses and crystals of Malachite.
The stones are semi precious and have beautiful, alternating light and dark green coloured bands, and are used quite extensively for collection, healing and jewelry. The alternating bands of dark and light green give a very esoteric, mysterious feel to these gemstones, and add significantly to the aura of these lovely stones.
This brooch can also be worn as a pendant, a beautiful piece!
