Malachite is an opaque mineral, which is noted for its green shades ranging from lighter tones to a black-green colour. Elegant, fine banded lines boost its design. The stone boasts a long history – it was already in ancient Egypt when people carved cameos, amulets and other decorative objects from this mineral. Besides, crushed malachite was used in painting or as a make-up. Our raw material is from the Congo. Chrysocolla is quite precious, rare mineral found in copper mines in Peru. In terms of its chemical composition, it is a hydrated copper phyllosilicate. It usually forms green-blue kidney-shaped or stalactite-like aggregates or crusts with different thickness.
