Malachite Crystals Meanings and Properties

Malachite has been used medicinally in many cultures for thousands of years. It is a powerful healer and balancer on every level, and has natural bacteriostatic qualities, so can be used to support the immune system and fight infection. Some refer to it as the “midwife stone”, as it is used to ease both labour and period pains, and with its high copper content, is believed to draw off heat and inflammation, and so is an effective treatment for relieving osteoarthritis and other inflammatory illnesses or injuries, as well as reducing fever. It has been used as a protective amulet throughout history, and in modern crystal healing, is often employed to absorb pollution and electromagnetic energy around computers and other electrical appliances.
