This is one of the earliest stones known to man.
Malachite is a stone of healing that is strong and direct; and when attached to a painful place, it absorbs the hard energy. One must take into consideration, that the pain may increase before it begins to weaken.
This stone helps prevent accidents. It often breaks when it absorbs the hard energy while protecting its wearer.
Malachite must not be cleaned with salt, but can be cleaned with running water.
