Malachite is a dark green stone that has been popular since ancient times, thanks to its intense color and natural beauty. (It’s also sometimes referred to as the birthstone of April and May.) The word malachite comes from two Greek words meaning mallow-leaf stone. It is an ore of copper and can be found in various places around the world, including Russia, Africa, Australia, and Brazil. It is typically mined for decorative purposes or used in jewelry making.
Malachite stone has long been used for its healing properties. It has been used for skin disorders, minor cuts and wounds, and stings from insects. Ancient Egyptians believed that if you had problems sleeping or were dealing with insomnia holding malachite in your hand could put you to sleep. Chinese medicine practitioners believe that malachite can strengthen your lungs. While many of these beliefs have no scientific backing they are still thought to be helpful in various areas.
