Malachite’s Moment

Over the last few months I have loved seeing a resurgence of the use of malachite in jewellery.

The stone to me is full of such organic vibrancy, the intense green so cheerful to the eye.  I was given a long row of Malachite from Malawi to  transform into something more wearable, this necklace was the result, pairing the boldness of colour with an unapologetic necklace strung with yellow gold.  Malachite is not a timid stone.  As the long month of January slowly passes I for one am enjoying seeing a welcome return to Malachite.

Malachite is Hydrated Copper Carbonate, it has a vitreous lustre with a silky texture and has long been used as an ornamental stone. Localities of Malachite are Russia, Chile, Congo, South Africa and Zaire.
