Malachite is an opaque stone in deep green shades. Thin, banded lines gently complement its striking colours. If we look at malachite’s chemical structure, it is copper bicarbonate. It usually forms coatings, acicular crystals or stable kidney aggregates with a layered structure. In ancient Egypt, people carved cameos, amulets and other decorative objects from this stone.

Special conditions/ treatment: Stones are fragile and not stable against chemicals. As they are very fragile, they are prone also to a mechanical damage.

About the product: The box contains manually polished malachites. The price is per 1 box. Stones are carefully arranged into three-layered paperboard boxes - these are firm and resistant, which makes them easy to store. The boxes are wrapped into stretch cling, which prevents them from damage. Folded boxes provide a complex presentation of our minerals.
