The word Malachite is derived from the Greek and Latin word for the soft green mallow plant. Malachite has been mined since 7000 BCE. It was prized by the Egyptians, who not only used it for adornments but also ground it into a fine powdered pigment. It is believed Cleopatra used it as eye shadow, it was found in her tomb. Today it is commonly used in jewelry, and as a powerful and protective healing stone.
