More Details

Malachite beads are also known as peacock stone beads, pseudo emerald beads, and silver peak jade beads. This lush green gemstone is a basic copper carbonate that is vividly banded. It is a chemical twin of azurite, and the two stones are commonly found together. Real malachite's low hardness means that it is easily scratched and susceptible to becoming dull. Protect genuine malachite beads from sharp blows and dramatic temperature changes. Do not wash in water, as that can remove the protective polish. Malachite beads are also easily damaged by acids and ammonia.
This semiprecious gemstone was being mined in the Sinai Peninsula as early as 4000 B.C., and has been popular since ancient times for use in jewelry, amulets, and architectural ornaments. Malachite is believed to regenerate cells, relax the nervous system, and calm stormy emotions.
