· What is the history of Malachite ?
Malachite is known since Ancient times as a healer. Its name was given by the Greeks, it means “Moloche” or “Mallow” because its color was similar to “Mallow Leaves”. This stone has always been very appreciated in Jewelry. Egyptians used it very often in jewelry but also in carving ornaments. It was also used in Scarabs and Amulets for Children, to give them protection. This stone was also used by the Greeks and the Romans for decoration and sculptures. Later, In Russia, The Czars used this stone in decoration, building big structures like the amazing pillars made of pure Malachite from the Ural Mountains in the St Isaac’s Church in Saint Petersburg.
