Malachite Mineral Specimen For SaleMalachite

 
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsMalachite (Cu2CO3(OH)2) is a secondary mineral that forms at shallow depths within the Earth.  It results from the chemical weathering of copper minerals, as when carbonated water reacts with native copper, or copper solutions react with limestone.  Green tarnish on copper is Malachite.

Malachite may have been the first copper ore to be mined, as early as 3000 BCE in ancient Egypt.  It was used as a pigment in green paints from antiquity until about 1800. The name Malachite comes from the Greek for "mallow leaf," referring to its distinctive green color.

Malachite commonly forms tufts of needles or other crystal masses, including rounded masses with interior concentric bands of dark and light green.  Being relatively soft and easy to carve, Malachite is highly prized for jewelry and other ornaments.

The Malachite specimens on this page are from Morocco.
