My favorite favorite mineral by far is the gorgeous green Malachite. This “mallow-green stone was named after its resemblance to the leaves of a mallow plant. Although Malachite has been mined from various countries, Arizona has been the most popular mining location for the mineral in the U.S.
The light and dark green bands that run through the mineral are so distinctive that malachite is one of the most recognized minerals today. Today malachite can be found in fabric, jewelry and home accessories. Here are a few of my favorite malachite pieces on the market today. I have been looking for a fabulous ring to wear this fall, but those crazy high price tags are holding me back.
