Malachite is a vibrant green mineral that forms through the weathering and oxidation of copper ore deposits. It is a secondary mineral that occurs in the uppermost parts of copper deposits, often in association with other copper minerals.

Malachite forms as a result of the interaction between copper-rich solutions and limestone or other carbonate rocks. The process involves the release of copper ions that combine with carbon dioxide and water to form malachite crystals. Over time, these crystals can accumulate and create massive deposits.

Malachite is found in various locations worldwide, including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Australia, Russia, and the United States. Notable sources include the copper mines in the Congo Basin, the Ural Mountains in Russia, and the Southwest regions of the United States.

Metaphysically, malachite is associated with the heart chakra and has been noted to provide a wide variety of protection. It is said to absorb negative energies and pollutants, bringing balance and harmony to the environment. Malachite is also thought to enhance physical vitality, strengthen the immune system, and aid in detoxification processes.

All crystals sourced responsibly and packaged with care and intention.
