MALACHITE

is a carbonate mineral, copper (II) carbonate hydroxide Cu2CO3(OH)2.

Except for the vibrant green color, the properties of Malachite are very similar to those

of Azurite and the two minerals are frequently found together, although Malachite is

more common than Azurite. The stone's name derives (via Latin and French) from

Greek word "molochitis", meaning "mallow-green stone", and from the French word

"moloche", meaning "mallow". Its banded light and dark green designs are one-of-akind,

and give it a unique ornamental quality unlike that of any other stone with a Moh's

hardness of 3.5-4. Large quantities of Malachite have been mined in the Urals. It is

found in the Democratic Republic of Congo; Tsumeb, Namibia; Ural mountains, Russia;

Mexico; Broken Hill, New South Wales; England; Lyon; and in the Southwestern United

States especially in Arizona at Bisbee and Morenci
