This listing is for a dainty Malachite ring, crafted by hand especially for you. To order, simply select your ring size and preferred setting (either a straight or star bezel wrapping around the stone) from the drop-down menus. I will then intuitively choose a piece of natural Malachite just for you, and use the specifications from your order to create your very own custom ring. Like all my work, each piece is individually made, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, ethically sourced gemstones and environmentally-friendly methods.

Well known to ancient Egyptians, Malachite mines were in use between the Suez and Sinai as early as 4000 B.C. Malachite was also popular with the Ancient Greeks and Romans for jewellery, ornaments and in powdered form, for eye shadow. Malachite was believed to protect against the 'Evil Eye' and to cure against various ailments. Russian Czars used Malachite for ornaments and paneling for their castles, and intricate inlay work.
One of the greatest properties of Malachite is protection, from both the physical and spiritual realm. Other properties include helping one to make change, creativity, enhancing the development of intuition, and to aid emotional healing. Keep Malachite with you to protect you whilst traveling or when undertaking tasks that may take a physical or psychological toll on your body.
