Known as the mirror of the soul, the healing powers of malachite have long been recognized, and it has traditionally been used to aid in recovery from physical and emotional illness, particularly for releasing guilt. Psychologically, it is thought to help release the lingering effects of negative experiences. It is said to allow the wearer to gain insight into the cause of ill-feeling, fear, resentment and anxiety. It is also believed to release these negative emotions.
In ancient times, malachite was used in amulets to protect against the evil eye, while in the Middle Ages it was used to protect children from dangers such as witches, and was kept in the bedroom to prevent nightmares.
Malachite is also said to protect the wearer from accidents and therefore is thought to be useful for travelers. It has been also been used to promote success in business and avoid undesirable professional associations. -- GemSelect
