Malachite (Green Copper)

 

Origin: Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo

 

Malachite is a secondary copper mineral, an opaque green banded stone that crystallizes and forms botryoidal, fibrous or stalagmitic growths deep underground. Its name is derived from the Greek words, molochitis lithos meaning "mallow-green stone".

 

We sell very attractive larger-sized tumbled stones. Pieces you can hold and feel in your hand. Our stones are categorised in mainly three sizes, small (ca. 25 to 35 mm & 10 to 25 grams), medium (ca. 30 to 40 mm and 25 to 35 grams) and large (ca. 35 to 55 mm and 35 to 80 grams). Our small is generally larger than the sizes usually found. Please note that these sizes are only indication as some may be smaller and others larger.
