Malachite is one of the best heart-healing stones for those of us who have been hurt in love before, and may have trouble remaining open to new love. Malachite clears painful memories and paves the way for new love to come into our lives.

As a stone of transformation, Malachite encourages change and emotional risk-taking. It shows us what is blocking our inner growth, draws out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes, then allows us to break unwanted ties and outworn patterns.

It encourages the expression of feelings, alleviating shyness, and teaches us the responsibility for our own thoughts and actions. It supports friendships, love, and empathy for other people.

Malachite helps battle depression and anxiety, and heals emotional abuse, especially when suffered in childhood.

Malachite assists in overcoming fear of confrontation, or fear of being seen or noticed, and helps us find the strength within to assume our rightful place in the Universe. It also encourages healthy relationships based on love and not need.

Malachite opens, heals, and activates the Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras. It associated with the determined responsibility of Capricorn, and the emotional drive of Scorpio.
