Malachite is a very interesting stone. It activates all energetic bodies and is especially good on the heart and throat chakras. It is known as a “stone of transformation” with deep cleansing and abilities of growth. It is used to help expel negative energies and pollutants from the body and is said to help with electromagnetic pollution.
In ancient Egypt, Malachite was used by the upper classes as one of their main power stones, serving as a grounding force to help them channel higher energies onto the planet.
“Well known to ancient Egyptians, Malachite mines were in use between the Suez and Sinai as early as 4000 BC. It was also popular with the ancient Greeks and Romans, for jewelry, ornaments, and in powdered form, for eye shadow. In the Middle Ages, Malachite was believed to protect against the "Evil Eye" and to cure various stomach ailments. Russian czars used Malachite for ornaments and paneling for their castles and intricate inlay work.” - Crystal Vault
