All About Malachite


Malachite is widely known as a stone of transformation, used to guide us through times of transition and growth.

The malachite stone has been called “the midwife stone”.  It is believed to resonate with the female reproductive organs, alleviate cramps and facilitate childbirth by lessening labour pains.

In the middle ages, malachite was attached to the side of an infant’s cradle to ward off evil spirits and allow the baby to sleep more soundly.

In a variety of times and cultures, malachite has been considered a gemstone of women and has been dedicated to Egyptian, Roman and Norse Goddesses
