Malachite Properties & Meaning
Known as the “Healer’s Stone,” this creature is often in demand because many believe it has miraculous healing properties and a willingness to sacrifice for its carrier in order to remove all negativity. Malachite is associated with the heart chakra and it is believed that Malachite can absorb illnesses, negativity and increase the overall well-being of a person and its surroundings. Malachite is said to be a powerful emotional cleanser helping to remove past traumas and negative emotions, to bring harmony into your life. Its use should be limited to small doses as its deep energetic cleansing may be uncomfortable for some. Since Malachite absorbs negativity, it should be cleansed after each healing session. A good way to cleanse your stone is to place it under the full moonlight or to use smudge sticks; please note that cleansing Malachite with water can wear away its surface.
Malachite is believed to lower blood pressure and help detoxify the liver. The copper content in Malachite is said to ease rheumatism and arthritis. It is also said that it eases cramps, including menstrual cramps and can facilitate childbirth. Please note Malachite dust is toxic and Malachite should only be used in its polished form and should not be used for elixirs. This gem is also a very protective stone and it will go as far as impeding harm by breaking into pieces. It truly is a symbol of unconditional love and it is an ideal gift for loved ones.
