◊ Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, obtaining its color from the copper. Through history, it was used as a mineral pigment in green paints up until the 1800s. There is archaeological evidence that indicates that the mineral was mined and smelted to obtain copper in Israel for over 3,000 years. Since then, malachite has been used not only as a gemstone, but an ornamental stone as well.

◊ Due to the aberrant nature of minerals, each gem/mineral is unique.
