Malachite is a member of the Carbonate mineral group. It forms in fractures and underground spaces in the form of fibrous, stalagmitic or botryoidal masses. For this crystal to occur there needs to be oxidation of primary sulfidic copper compounds and hydrothermal fluids that will carry the chemical precipitation process. The crystals grow undisturbed, but can sometimes be found alongside Azurite, Chrysocolla and Calcite minerals. It forms in beautiful lines and patterns, but it can also form as ‘Fibrous Malachite’ that has the silky finish and shimmer.
Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral. It has a 3.5 to 4 score on the Mohs scale of harness which makes it more likely to be susceptible to abrasion and impact. The fracture type is subchonchoidal to uneven when the mineral is cracked.
Malachite’s name comes from the Greek word “malakos” which translates to soft. This probably points out the gentle nature of this crystal and its relation to the heart.
