Malachite is a Heart chakra stone that is said to help battle against depression or anxiety by encouraging to uncover the reasons for your distress and then helping you to break negative patterns or behaviour. Speak your fears and sorrow daily aloud as you hold the crystal and then leave your Malachite in a sheltered place outdoors overnight to carry away the fears on the winds. Malachite personifies the deep healing green of nature and represents the innate beauty of flowers, trees, roots and plants. It is a Stone of Transformation, assisting one in changing situations and providing for spiritual growth. It encourages risk taking and change.
Because of Malachite's peculiar markings, some of which suggest the form of an eye, Malachite was worn in parts of Italy as an amulet to protect the wearer from the spell of the Evil Eye. Malachite is one of the oldest known stones, used for thousands of years for its healing and transforming properties. 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.
Malachite's affirmation is: I will follow my heart. I welcome positive transformation into my life.
