Malachite... Did you know each piece is unique in its patterns with no two looking alike. Malachite mines have been found in the Sinai, which have been worked as early as 4000 B.C.
Malachite was believed to have the ability to foretell impending disaster by breaking into pieces, as well as protecting the wearer from the danger of falling. Has always been considered the money and merchant stone.
A guardian stone for travelers, it was definitely a protective stone. Pieces of malachite bearing resemblance to an eye were worn in some parts of Italy to protect against the Evil Eye.
