These Malachite earrings measure approximately 1.2 inches long from the top of the earring hook to the bottom of the earring and 0.5 of a inch in width. The Malachite cabochons measure approximately 0.5 inches by 0.4 inches (14mm x 10mm) in size.
Malachite was known as early as 3000 B.C. in Egypt, Rome and Greece. The stone was highly sought after for jewelry, ornaments, and in powdered form as an eye shadow.
Malachite is an important stone for protection against negative energy. Malachite will draw positive energy into the wearer's field to prevent ill effects of negative energy. The positive energy of Malachite will encourage its wearer to create and manifest their dreams and desires.
