Malachite: Healing and Magickal Properties

When I saw a Malachite for the first time, I actually thought it was made from polymer clay! The green swirls and patterns looked too handmade to be a gemstone, I thought. But, of course, I was wrong. Malachite is a beautiful crystal, with no stone looking like the other. So what does it do and which magical properties does it own?

What is a Malachite?

Malachite is a mineral that comes in various shades of green. It has a banded structure and can form different shapes. Malachite is a copper carbonate with the chemical formula CuCO3 (OH)2. It can be found all around the world!

Malachite is a stone that has been prized for centuries for its healing and magical properties. It was used by ancient Egyptians as protection against evil spirits.

The Romans used it to promote peace, harmony, and balance in the home. They also believed that Malachite would protect them from snake bites, venom, and scorpion stings.

Malachite: Stone Meaning

Abraham Gottlob Werner first described the Malachite in 1789. It was called the “mountain stone” because of its occurrence in mountainous regions. The name malachite comes from the Greek word for “mallow” because of its resemblance to this plant’s leaves.

Healing Properties of Malachite

The power of Malachite lies in its ability to bring balance back to the body and soul. This way, a Malachite can help with sleep problems, anxiety and depression, and it balances the emotions and enhances intuition and creativity. Malachite also has protective qualities that guard against negativity from others or self-sabotage.

The healing properties of malachite include: protection, grounding, balance, healing from within and without, stress relief, emotional support and more!

Magickal Properties of Malachite

Malachite has been used for centuries in magic and protection spells. The ancient Egyptians used it for protection against the evil eye, and today it is still used to ward off negative energy.

Malachite is a stone of transformation and change. It is said to have the ability to help with psychic abilities, as well. It has been used for centuries by many cultures as a protection against negative energy and bad luck.

How to work with Malachite

Malachite has been used for thousands of years for jewelry, and it is still a great idea to wear it as a necklace, bracelet or earrings. But it is also used to make pottery and other objects, which are a good way to keep your home clear of negative energies!

Cleansing & Charging a Malachite

You can clean any Malachite under warm running water and leave it in the sun or moonlight for a few hours to recharge it. If you have the feeling your Malachite needs more than this, then place it under a tree or even bury it on the earth for a few days. You will be amazed how powerful it will be afterwards!

Malachite makes the perfect companion and works as a shield against negativity. Wearing it, you will feel like being cared for, and isn’t this something we need at these difficult times?

Crystals for Manifesting Money and Abundance

Crystals have been used for centuries as a way of tapping into the power of the Universe to manifest positive energy and bring about desired change. By simply holding a crystal in your hand, placing one on an altar, or wearing one as jewelry, you can align your energy with the most powerful force in existence: universal love. Here are three crystals that will help you to manifest money and abundance. 

Green Aventurine

If you want to manifest money and abundance, you can connect the energy of that goal with the energy of a crystal by using green aventurine. This is a crystal of opportunity, helping you to align your dreams of abundance with actions that will get you there.


Citrine is often used for wealth and can be used to attract more money into your life. Not only will it help you find creative ideas for business ventures and other ways to make money, but it can offer more clarity when it comes to switching careers.


Pyrite can also be used for manifesting abundance and wealth. The natural energy of pyrite is about attracting more motivation into your life, which can then help you with abundance and success.

How to survive a gemstone fair

Last weekend I went to a gemstone fair, the first one since 2019. I simply love them and, of course, I spent too much money there. But even looking at all the amazing displays is amazing, and I felt happy and relaxed as well as inspired when I left.

Over the years, I gave myself a few rules on how to survive a gemstone fair and enjoy the experience. My first fair was a disaster as I was simply overwhelmed after a few minutes and felt like my kid in the Lego store, running from one stall to the next going oh and ah!  
So here are my personal rules on how to survive a gemstone fair!

Make a shopping list and stick to a budget.  

Yes, there are wonderful stones there, but which one do I really need for my magical work?  Of course, there are always crystals calling out to me, so I have to make tough decisions whether to get them or not.

Eat before going.  

At least when I am hungry, I can get mighty grumpy or might make wrong decisions when purchasing crystals. That’s why I eat something before a fair and always carry a snack with me, so I don’t run out of energy in the middle of the fair.

Don’t buy one at first sight.  

Yes, I want all the gems and I want them now. But first I discipline myself and have a good look around. Sometimes I find a better offer or even something I want more.

Don’t touch anything.

Yes, they all look beautiful, and seem to be smiling and sparkling at you. But even if you are not as sensitive as I am, it still might mess up your energy. After my first visit to such a fair, I felt like I was on drugs, simply because I had touched all the stones I liked! Now I start touching the stones only after my first look around!

Take a bag with you.  

Normally they offer wrapping paper and plastic bags, but I prefer them to have them in my backpack or a cotton bag.

Take notes or even better pictures of the names of the crystals you bought.

I have to admit I can be really forgetful of names, not only from people, but also from crystals. That’s why I started writing down their names or taking pictures from the name tags at the stall. This way I will remember the name!

From my kid: don’t throw the stones!

He just wanted me to add this. 😉

I hope that you can visit a gemstone fair soon and have some magical experiences there.
