MALACHITE TUMBLED STONES
Malachite is a popular, intense green, copper-based mineral. While Malachite rarely forms as large individual crystals, it is often found in botryoidal (globular) masses. When cut or polished these botryoidal masses display gorgeous, banded patterns full of concentric rings and other interesting shapes. This polished, banded malachite is highly sought after and has been used for decorative/ornamental purposes for centuries.
