Malachite is a powerful stone, but one that needs to be handled with caution. It is best used under the supervision of a qualified crystal therapist. Malachite is toxic and should be used only in its polished form.
Malachite amplifies both positive and negative energies onto the planet. It is believed that Malachite is still evolving and will be one of the most important healing stones of the new millennium.
With Malachite being a powerful stone, one of its qualities is protection. It absorbs negative energies and pollutants easily, picking them up from the atmosphere and the body. It should be cleansed before and after use by placing it on a quartz cluster in the sun (do not use salt to cleanse, it will damage the stone).
Malachite is a stone of transformation. Life is lived more intensely under the influence of this adventurous stone, which encourages risk taking and change. It will mercilessly show you what is blocking your spiritual growth and will draw out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes, break unwanted ties and outworn patterns. Malachite will teach one how to take responsibility for their own actions, thoughts and feelings.
