Malachite is a stone of prosperity, protection, healing, and spiritual transformation. Pharaohs in ancient Egypt were said to wear headdresses lined with Malachite, for accessing wisdom of the higher self, as well as for protection. Malachite is said to cleanse the heart and open it to unconditional love. It helps you move beyond emotional blockages, and clear the way for the wisdom of your higher self to guide your decisions in life. It is also useful for protection against electromagnetic pollution. Because Malachite absorbs negative energy, it is important to cleanse the stone often. Malachite is associated with the heart and throat Chakras.
