Oh, this collage makes me HAPPY. I really, really love malachite. Green is my favorite color and even as a kid (I had quite the rock collection when I was younger), I’ve always loved malachite. For my 40th birthday, I bought myself a malachite lollipop ring from Retrouvai, my favorite, but I actually don’t own very much malachite. I have a little slab of it on my coffee table (a gift from my sister), I bought this malachite print robe (runs TTS, highly recommend – it’s even more beautiful person) and kind of want to be extra with a whole malachite dining set? That’s for a someday list, right now we eat at my kitchen island as I don’t have room for a dining table in my apartment. But IF I had a dining table, I would absolutely be springing for the plates, tray, etc. Chic!

I thought it would be fun to do a bit of research on my favorite mineral. Malachite is considered a healing stone. Its meaning is transformation and positive change (I can get behind that, think we all need a little positive change after the past couple years, no?). The Egyptians would grind it down into a fine powder to use as eye shadow. In the middle ages, healers would use it to soothe stomach ailments and to protect against curses and negative energies. A 17th-century Spanish superstition held that having a child wear a lozenge of malachite would help them sleep, and keep evil spirits at bay. Whether or not you believe in any of that or the power of stones and crystals, it’s really just a very beautiful stone.
Some personal favorites from the roundup: A malachite print yoga mat? COOL! This malachite + crystal necklace is so luxe (but extremely expensive). I really love this candle, and when it’s gone you could use the jar to store q-tips or cotton balls in the bathroom. These earrings make such a statement… you could literally wear any plain old outfit and look so elegant wearing them. Lastly, this tray. Just too good.
