When I design using Malachite I want it to show the wonderful banding of each individual stone – no two are the same. In this piece I have selected three beautiful 10mm stones and loosely entwined them in 925 Sterling silver. The pendant measures 5cm including the bail and is suspended from a 45cm Belcher chain.
Malachite is a beautiful mineral that is known for its unusual rays and streaks of rich green which don’t fade over time. It was originally used as a source of copper and has been used for thousands of years for jewellery and sculpture.
Malachite is believed to be a protection stone, and is thought to absorb negative energies from the atmosphere and from the body. It is also carried to help with the fear of flying and is sometimes gifted to airline workers as a talisman against accidents.
