Situations it could be helpful in:

  • When used for the heart, malachite can be a wonderful stone for balancing the heart chakra, revealing that which might be blocking you from receiving love, and ultimately opening you up to receive unconditional love
  • Malachite is blunt. It will reveal emotions that no longer serve us, perhaps painfully so, but only so we can swiftly move on to healing and openness. This may cause you to feel vulnerable or even realize thoughts and actions that you need to take responsibility for.
  • Helping clean the air in your home if you live in a city or area that has a lot of pollutants.

As always, please consult with a professional or medical expert for assessing your personal mental and physical needs.  Crystals should be used in conjunction with what is recommended by your doctor, not in lieu of.

Malachite is toxic to ingest particularly in its unpolished form. I would avoid using in elixirs, especially while you’re just started to explore crystals.
