#WednesdayWonders – #Gemstones – #Malachite

Welcome to another stroll through the amazing world of gemstones!

I only have a very small piece of the gemstone I am going to share with you today, but my sister, Linda Broday, sent me photos of her beautiful Malachite heart to show more of this stone’s beauty. Thank you, sister!

The first photo is my little piece and it is approximately 3/4″.

The next photo is my sister’s Malachite heart.

Malachite is an important protection stone. It absorbs negative energies and pollutants, picking them up from the atmosphere and from the body.

It can help guard against radiation and clear electromagnetic pollution (like the Sodalite we looked at last week).  It is recommended that anyone who lives near a nuclear power plant, have this stone in their home.

Malachite clears and activates the chakras, especially the heart chakra and third eye. It is a powerful tool to assist with spiritual guidance. It opens the heart to unconditional love, encourages risk-taking and change, breaks unwanted ties and outworn patterns, and teaches how to take responsibility for one’s actions, thoughts, and feelings.  Malachite releases inhibitions and develops empathy with others. It alleviates mental disturbances and combats dyslexia. 

It can aid in enabling you to absorb and process information. It can also stimulate dreams.

Physically, Malachite is an extremely versatile healing stone. It is particularly useful for menstrual cramps and has been called the midwife stone as it aids in childbirth. It resonates with the female sexual organs. This stone can help lower blood pressure, treat asthma, epilepsy, swollen joints, travel sickness, vertigo and the parathyroid. It aligns DNA and cellular structure to enhance the immune system.

It is recommended that you wear Malachite on your left hand, if a ring and left wrist, if a bracelet. You may place it on your solar plexus to absorb deep negative emotions.

Use ONLY polished Malachite. If used as an elixir, place the stone near, but not in the water.

I’d love to hear from you. Do you have a piece of Malachite? If so, how do you use it?

  1. I own a couple of pieces of malachite. I don’t do much of anything with my stones but get them out occasionally to admire them and remember where or how I acquired them.

  2. I am impressed by the healing effects of that stone. I don’t have one so far but always loved it for its beautiful look. I will definitely look out for one to help lower my blood pressure, and for the other faith-related effect. Amazing!

  3. Jan, the properties of this stone just blow me away. No wonder I’ve gravitated to it. I keep it on my table runner and each time I sit to eat, I pick it up. I thought it was just the beauty that drew me but knowing the properties, I think it provides something I really need. I’m also drawn to my piece of Honey Calcite for some reason. When I bought it, it was almost a last minute decision. Almost as though I knew I needed it. I thought I’d like it the least but it’s come to be one of my most precious rocks. I often keep it in my pocket throughout the day even though it’s really too big. Sister, I’m so glad we share this addiction. 🙂 Love you.

    1. We have always shared this addiction to rocks, sister. Rocks and books. 🙂 I don’t have any Honey Calcite, but had to look it up and it says it’s great energy for helping to launch new projects. Maybe that’s why you’ve been drawn to it so strongly. Thank you so much for stopping by and for letting me use your beautiful Malachite heart for this post! Love you!

    1. A gorgeous and powerful stone to have, Gwen. Put it by your computer when you find it. Also, Friday is the full moon and it’s wonderful to charge this stone under the moon. Thank you for stopping by!


  4. What a fun and informative post. I loved hearing about the “midwife stone.” I have a collection of beautiful stones that I will have to take out of storage (i.e., A box in my catchall closet) to see if I have one of these. Enjoyed your post, Jan!

    1. Oh, yes, Maura Beth! Pull them out and see what you have, then put them out under the next full moon (Friday) to charge! I’d love to hear back from you when you get them out of their storage. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
