Transform Your Vibes

Malachite is well known for its ability to help you transform yourself, let go of anything that doesn’t serve you anymore, as well as nourish and grow everything beneficial for you. It’s an amazing crystal of personal growth and transformation that helps in breaking off even the negative patterns with deepest roots. It is a green stone that radiates with energies that soothe and balances the heart chakra, but at the same time, it can be used to balance and remove blocks from other chakras as well.

Malachite is truly an amazing crystal to add to your crystal healing collection because of its ability to help you manifest the change that you so desperately need in your life as well as in yourself. Malachite holds also a very deep connection with Mother Nature, and it also resembles her beautiful shades of green that have such a healing effect on us whenever we spend time with her.

In fact, it resembles her colors so much that the name Malachite comes from the Greek word “malache” which means Mellow leaves. With its mesmerizing green transformations from lighter to deeper green, Malachite is one of the most beautiful and eye-catchy stones of the crystal world, and completely unmistakable for another crystal.
