How This Deadly Stone Can Actually Improve Your Life: A Guide to Malachite

Throughout history, this crystal was one of the causes of death to millions of people, but when handled correctly, it is one of the best healing stones for recovering from abuse trauma, it can help you during the birthing process, and can help improve your love life. Most people know this crystal because of its distinguishable bands and swirls of all shades of green. It is like a kaleidoscope of greens! It is also botryoidal so it resembles a grape-y texture, bubbling up in certain areas. You guessed it..... MALACHITE!

I find this so ironic because Malachite is a toxic stone itself, however it can help you detoxify your life! It can help you cut out dead-end friendships, dead-end relationships, toxic acquaintances, or bad habits and patterns. It can also help you physically and spiritually by detoxifying any EMF's or radiation you've been exposed to. 

Learning Lessons

Malachite is an excellent teacher in lessons. This makes it a great stone to carry when you are trying to heal a relationship, trying to shift your mindset, or just in general. It can help you pick up on the patterns and habits that are holding you back or are detrimental. It is a great stone for helping you to push forward, but not without true growth. 

When you wear this stone, you may suddenly see a difference in the way you think. You may suddenly start to think before you act or speak, so it is a great stone for learning cause and effect. In relationships, this stone is absolutely key because it can help you see what situations, words, or actions lead to an altercation. Many couples grow stronger with the help of this stone. Conversely, it can help give you the courage you need to push yourself out of a dead-end relationship and into a brighter future. 

Abuse Recovery

Because Malachite is such an amazing stone for learning lessons and pushing forward, it can help people understand why the abuse occurred to help them from blaming themselves. It can also help you gather the strength to grow out of fear. Many people who suffer from PTSD or have survived abuse live their lives in a state of vigilance, fear, and avoidance. This stone can help you be strong enough to live your life with a new style of confidence. 

For survivors of sexual trauma, it can get rid of a lot of the physical trauma that tends to linger. It is a great stone for the male and female sexual organs, so it can help reconnect you to your sense of sexuality so you can find pleasure in sex again.

"Midwife Stone"

Malachite is an important stone in a female's life. It can help heal the sexual organs, regulate hormones and menstrual cycles. It has been known as "The Midwife Stone" since ancient times because it can help ease the pain for women during labor and help them give birth pain free. Wearing this stone during labor or having it near you can help your body energetically fight the pain. 

!! CAUTION !! This Stone Is Toxic

Be careful when handling this stone, as it has a history of causing death! When tumbled or polished it is TOTALLY safe to touch. But be careful touching a raw piece by always washing your hands afterwards. 

In the Ancient Egyptian and Greek times and the 16th, 17th, and 18th century, it was very popular to use Malachite pigment in makeup. However, applying this green copper ore to one's face was later found to cause a series of serious symptoms, and later found to kill. 

This Emerald Green pigment was also used in paint for walls and art. Many people died because of the fumes of this paint emanating through their homes. It is said that the wallpaper in Napoleon Bonaparte's home (made of Malachite pigments) could be one of the causes of his death. (Source).

Crystals for Coping With Death

1. Rose Quartz

The main feeling associated with the death of a loved one is grief. Everybody grieves at their own rate and in their own way. Rose Quartz is a great crystal for relieving the feelings of grief, guilt, and trauma. The great thing about this crystal is it works so gently and is so supportive. A customer of mine once wore a Rose Quartz pendant during her own grieving process and texted me to say, "I think the Rose Quartz is really working!" When you receive the uplifting energy of Rose Quartz, it is not something you feel, but something you recognize. You don't feel happier, you don't feel calmer, but you notice something is missing - sadness, loneliness, and blame. Rose Quartz helps us shed and release all the negative emotions we may be facing, and restore our heart with feelings of joy and hope. To use this crystal, I would make sure it is with you through your entire grieving process. Investing in a necklace, ring, or pocket stone would be the best choice. Outbursts of emotions can hit at anytime during the grieving process. Rose Quartz is there to support the heart when it is in need and also fights against these "bursts". 

Rose Quartz can especially be supportive if the loss was for a mother, grandmother, or significant female role (or nurturing role) in your life. It is also known as "the mothering crystal" because of it's nurturing properties. This crystal can ease your pain, restore your happiness, and help you care for yourself just as a mother would. 

2. Lepidolite

Death can be one of the hardest transitions in our life that we face. Suddenly someone that was once a part of your life is no longer there. It may make some feel empty, some feel depressed, and some might also hold on to the idea that the person is still there. These are all common coping responses; however, the most important thing to do in the situation is let go. Lepidolite is perhaps one of the best crystals for easing transitions. We don't often think of the death of a loved one as a transition, but it surely is. This crystal will help one go through the transition of grief and also in the bigger scheme of things, it will help one understand the transition of the physical plane to the spiritual plane. It carries strong lithium levels for balance, so the feelings of anger, sadness, or anxiety will not surface as strongly. It also helps one accept tough situations as they come. If you think Lepidolite will help you, I recommend holding the crystal anytime you feel upset. Keep it in your pocket, wear it, or carry it in your purse. Spend as much time with this crystal as you can. Lepidolite can also be great if you or someone you know is facing the dying process. It may change the way you open up to and accept the idea that death is just another term for moving on to the next plane. 


3. Apache Tears

Native legend tells a haunting story of the Apache Tear (below). Reading the legend may help you understand the Apache Tear and its properties. This specific stone has been used all throughout history for the grieving process. It helps prevent further drain and damage from the aura. Whenever you are feeling heavy feelings of grief, hold an Apache Tear into the light and be reminded of the story below. 

The haunting legend about the Apache Tear is about the Pinal Apaches, who had made several raids on a settlement in Arizona. The military and some volunteers trailed the tracks of the stolen cattle and waited for dawn to attack the Apaches. The Apaches, confident in the safety of their location, were completely surprised and out-numbered in the attack. Nearly 50 of the band of 75 Apaches were killed in the first volley of shots. The rest of the tribe retreated to the cliff’s edge and chose death by leaping over the edge rather than die at the hands of the white men. For years afterward those who ventured up the treacherous face of Big Pacacho in Arizona found skeletons, or could see the bleached bones wedged in the crevices of the side of the cliff.

The Apache Women and the lovers of those who had died gathered a short distance from the base of the cliff where the sands were white, and for a moon they wept for their dead. They mourned greatly, for they realized that not only had their 75 brave Apache warriors died, but with them had died the great fighting spirit of the Pinal Apaches. Their sadness was so great, and their burden of sorrow so sincere that the Great Father imbedded into black stones the tears of the Apache Women who mourned their dead. These black obsidian stones, when held to the light, reveal the translucent tear of the Apache.

4. Selenite 

Some people are calmer during the grieving process and don't need help easing their emotions. For empaths, those who are more sensitive, and those who don't have a lot of experience with death, it may be harder to understand what is going on. The crystal I recommend for EVERYONE after someone has passed is a Selenite. This crystal is not for the emotional aspects of coping, but rather builds a connection spiritually that will remain. Selenite protects against negative energies and cleanses an area. After someone passes, this is very important to use because you are now thought of in a different plane. Selenite is also important to use after death because it connects us to the angelic realm - this includes angelic communication, guidance, etc. This crystal may help you connect to the one you lost in a bright and beautiful way. Sleep with this crystal or meditate with it if you would like to connect with the one you lost.
