Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

We're continuing our crystal journey today, and this week, we've got a lovely gemstone to share as Sarah asked us; what is Malachite good for? 

Crystal of The Week


What is Malachite good for?

Malachite is a gorgeous green crystal that has swirls, bands and rosettes in all shades of emerald, it is readily available and is usually one of the first crystals most collectors buy.

We have a few tumbles stones at BBHQ, although we were given this larger piece a few years ago. We think it was supposed to be a rather abstract dolphin, although Melvyn said he didn't think it looked very fishy to him! MOL

Let's tell mew a little about the gem lore surrounding this very verdant crystal. Malachite is safe to handle in its polished form, although do be careful as the raw unpolished crystal is rather toxic, so always buy tumbled stones or carvings.

It is purportedly a crystal that can amplify positive and negative energies and is a supurr protection stone and can assist in grounding spiritual energies. It is also said to be a stone of transformation and can aid mew to be more adventurous, to enable change and be more open to risk-taking.

It is reported to be good for chakra healing and its ideal placement is the heart chakra for bringing harmony and balance, although we've read that it's also good for the third eye as it could potentially activate psychic visions, though we'll have to get back to mew on that as we've never tried it. Mew can use it on the other chakra points too, for example, if placed on the solar plexus it is reported to promote emotion healing, and release negative traumas/experiences.

Malachite is also reputed to assist with clearing EMF's and guards against pollution, helping to heal earth energies. So if mew missed our last two crystals which also help with EMF cleansing and protection, click here for orgonite and shungite.  And purrhaps add a few malachite tumble stones to your EMF home defence repertoire.

Another thing we read about this stone is that it can aid in drawing out deeper feelings, and can help breaking unwanted ties and/or patterns that mew feel need adjustment in your life. Its also reputed to help with releasing inhibitions and helps to encourage empathy towards others.

It is a crystal of intuition and problem-solving, and can supposedly assist with becoming more observant, insightful with the ability to absorb information more readily. 

As with all the crystals we've mentioned, there is oodles of jewellery made from this gorgeous green stone, so if mew're drawn to it, know mew can get bracelets, earrings and pendants plus the regular tumble stones and it's not an expensive crystal to buy either.

Even if mew don't want to use your crystal in any specific way, we think malachite is a mighty pretty stone to have in a crystal collection.

Many thanks for emailing us Sarah, and we hope that answered your question.

  1. Yes! Green and pink are so pretty in that mandala!

    Our 'Oma' had lots of malachite jewellery, and our 'Opa' Had plenty of the polished stones in his collection. I think I have some of it here in a big box of his things...

    Malachite is even mentioned in the Bible! (As are many gems and crystals.)

  2. That is strange about the Malachite. I thought it was so pretty and bought a piece many years ago,probably 35 or 40. It always made me feel uneasy and unwell. I didn't like to just throw it away so took it and buried it in one of our fields. Maybe it was unpolished and I was getting toxins from it. Now this is the spooky part. One of the horse owners was having trouble with her horse and got a horse whisperer out. The horse told her that there was an area of the field he didn't like. We had assumed it was where we had covered a spring course with rubble, galvanised sheets and soil. Now I am wondering if it was that Malachite as although I can't remember exactly where I buried it, I know it was in that general area.

  3. Beautiful crystals. Love those rich colors.

    You know how I love the breathing exercises and look forward to them to start my week out properly.

    Oh the beautiful colors. Beautiful.
