Malachite History:

Possibly the earliest ore off copper, having been mined in the Sinai and eastern deserts of ancient Egypt from as early as 3000BC, malachite is a green copper carbonate hydroxide. It was used as an eye paint, a pigment for wall painting, and in glazes and the colouring of glass.

Malachite Facts:

On Mohs scale of mineral hardness malachite grades 3.5 - 4. As well as being very soft it's also porous so must be protected from moisture.  Sudden exposure to heat can affect its colour or cause cracks.

Despite being soft and fragile malachite has always been popular as a carving material.  It's also widely used as a gemstone.

With malachite being an ore of copper its dust is highly toxic.  When cutting and polishing protective breathing equipment must always be worn.  Once polished, stones are completely safe to handle.  It is however good practice to wash your hands after touching a freshly cut or very dusty specimen.
