Shop Malachite Cabochons gemstones for jewelry design or making, natural Malachite Cabochons loose stones for sale online.
Probably one of the most elegant-looking gemstones in the jewelry industry is the Malachite. Its vivid green saturation--which is the stone’s most interesting and striking property, is impervious to fading when the stone ages or even when it is exposed to sunlight for long. Ranging from pastel green, light green, and to deep green gradients, Malachite stone is always characterized with resplendence. However, this stone is considered a soft stone with a hardness level of 3.5 to 4 on the Mohs scale, which requires professional lapidary skills for the stone to be cut and polished into cabochons and beads for use in making exquisite jewelry pieces.
Our shop features top-of-the-line lustrous and highly polished Malachite cabochons with vibrant green color and beautiful color banding. Majority of the cabochons in this collection have fancy pear / teardrop shapes, with the others in simple geometrical shapes of rectangle, round, square and a slightly distorted soft-edged triangle. Our Malachite cabochons are also perfect for making any jewelry piece, especially bracelets and earrings. Because they feature mostly deep green hues, they perfectly suit vintage-styled jewelries.
In the ancient years, Malachite was used for keeping children away from bad spirits and making them sleep well. The stone is also believed to have good disease-protection property.
