Malachite is a pure flow of vibrant, strong and powerfully renewing energy. It is easy to recognize the malachite for its lively green colors, as well as the beautiful striations along the surface of the stone.
The meaning of malachite is in its energy. Malachite is one of the best stones to promote a constant flow because this powerful healer is especially attuned to improving your health and well-being. Malachite clears stagnant energy, removes blockages and helps you achieve a state of genuine well-being on many levels — from physical to emotional.
Be aware that, as with many other stones, malachite is often synthetically made. The beautiful malachite ring you just bought from a department store might not be a real malachite, so always best to ask about the origin and quality of your stone before purchasing jewelry.

A reputable supplier will help you differentiate between the natural and the man-made malachite so you can make an informed choice.

You can easily find malachite in tumbled form, as well as in shapes such as hearts, spheres, pyramids, angels, turtles, etc. 

It is not easy to find malachite clusters or natural points, while geodes are sometimes available. Of course, malachite jewelry is popular and widely available, but again, be sure you are buying a natural malachite if you want to truly benefit from the healing energy of this stone.

What Is Special About Malachite?

Malachite has a unique combination of fresh and potent flow of healing energy that is refreshing and soothing at the same time. Depending on the depth of its multitude of green colors, malachite can also be grounding and calming.
This is a much-loved stone in many cultures because it has a strong renewing energy that is optimistic, healing and revitalizing; malachite reminds us to always look at life with fresh new eyes.
Malachite is also used for protection, especially when the striations on its surface resemble the eye shape (this use is similar to the use of Dzi beads and Turkish "evil eye" jewelry).

Where Does Malachite Come From?

Most of the malachite on the market come from Russia, Zaire, Chile, and Australia.

Specific Feng Shui Properties

As a strong energizer and protector, the malachite is used in many feng shui cures — from feng shui turtles for support, spheres and egg shapes for health to malachite Wu Lou (Chinese gourds) for wealth.
Malachite can also energize any stagnant area of your home or office, so it can be used as a feng shui activating cure for a specific period of time.

Where to Place Malachite for Good Feng Shui

The strong and vibrant green of the malachite — a color that belongs to the Wood feng shui element — makes malachite items an excellent feng shui cure for Health & Family (East) and Money & Abundance (Southeast) areas of your home bagua.
You can also place the malachite in the office, close to your computer, to help maintain your energy levels throughout the day.

What Form of Malachite Should I Choose?

You can go for malachite tumbled rocks or choose from a variety of carvings, such as the ones mentioned above — from angels to hearts, it is up to you to choose a symbol that speaks to you the most.
Of course, if malachite is the stone whose energy can really benefit you, do not hesitate to buy yourself malachite jewelry. It is not very expensive, and it can really work its magic when placed close to your body/in your personal energy field.
