MALACHITE-  It is said in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, “ the goddess of the sky drops stars on the earth in the shape of green stones.”  The Egyptians collected their Malachite from the Sinai peninsula and used it for their amulets. It is considered a “transformation” stone. This stone is particularly useful for pregnant women. It promotes growth and builds up strength. It is a useful stone to promote understanding and spirituality.  It helps to  draw out deep feelings of hurt and resentment. It clarifies emotions and releases negative emotions.  This makes it an ideal stone for meditation use.  It is particularly effective over the heart chakra but may be used to clear and activate all chakras.  Wear on the left hand or place on the third eye. To care for your malachite, you may discharge your stone by wrapping it in a handkerchief and placing it amongst dry tumbled stones.  To recharge, place stone among rock crystals.
