Malachite and Chrysocolla

A beautiful combination of natures most powerful stones. Malachite is a potent crystal ally that can support our alignment to the Earth and our base chakra. Malachite has a strong affinity to Egypt and especially to the Goddess Hathor. It is a copper carbonate which was prized as the easiest copper mineral to reduce to copper metal in ancient Egypt. Malachite was largely mined by slaves who were unaffected by the large outbreaks of cholera of that time and so was also revered as a powerful protector.

Chrysocolla has an deep nurturing energy. This deeply blue-green coloured mineral was once called "green turquoise" before being distinguished as a mineral of its own. This strong copper bearing mineral was also used as a caustic application for wounds, ulcers, sore eyes and as a very dangerous emetic. The name comes from the Greek chrysos meaning gold, and kolla meaning glue in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold, first used by Theophrastus in 315 BCE.
