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 tone.
