Crystals 101 Malachite History - The Spiritual Crystal FairyThe History of Malachite

It is mined in Russia, The Congo, and Australia and its name derives from the Greek ‘malakos’, meaning soft. Somewhat surprising for a truly powerful stone, but malachite, while being strong and bold, is also an intensely healing stone, connected with the heart chakra. 

It has been revered for thousands of years, with the Ancient Egyptians and Ancient Greeks using malachite for many different things. The Ancient Egyptians, in particular, would use it in a variety of ways - grinding it to a powder to use as eyeshadow, wearing it as jewelry or headpieces, and placing it in their homes to provide aesthetic appeal, as well as energetic benefits.

Thanks to its deep, rich green hue, malachite works well with the heart chakra, helping to balance, open, and protect this most precious energy center. The heart chakra is the bridge between two realms - the physical, grounding energies of the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras, and the spiritual, ethereal energies of the throat, third eye, and crown chakras. 

Being in such a powerful position of an energetic crossover, the heart chakra can be one of the most vulnerable chakras, prone to imbalance. Malachite can help not only to protect this sacred chakra from becoming misaligned but also help to realign it by providing healing energy and the confidence to embrace change. 

Malachite works wonderfully well with Scorpios and Capricorns. For Scorpios, who, thanks to their watery nature, can find their energy going up and down regularly, malachite will help to ground this energy and maintain it at a level ebb. The sign of Scorpio is linked to the imagery of the Phoenix - rising from the ashes - the transformational energy helping Scorpios to focus and make a change, instead of becoming stuck in overthinking or emotion. 

Conversely, for Capricorns, who can find that their emotions and energy can be a little too suppressed, malachite helps to ignite some passion inside, reconnecting them to their joy and imagination, and giving them the sense of inner strength needed to pursue their dreams.

Malachite can be cleansed confidently with water or left in rice to absorb any negative energy it may have taken on. To charge your malachite, leave your crystal next to some selenite or clear quartz to allow it to be restored to full power, or, if you can, leave it outside in some foliage or on the grass, to absorb the energy of Mother Nature.
