One of the best heart healing stones. If you've been hurt in love before, you may have trouble remaining open to new love. Malachite is great in this regard, clearing painful memories and paving the way for new love to come into your life.
As a stone of transformation, Malachite encourages change and emotional risk-taking. It shows what is blocking your inner growth, draws out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes, then allows you to break unwanted ties and outworn patterns.
It encourages the expression of feelings, alleviating shyness and teaching the responsibility for one's 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 one find the strength within to assume their rightful place in the Universe. It also encourages healthy relationships based on love and not need.
