Types of Malachite at LuxeRox
LuxeRox offers two types of malachite specimens: velveteen malachite and azurite-malachite. Velveteen malachite is unique because of its chatoyancy, or cat’s eye effect, which gives it a shimmering velvet texture that’s both beautiful and touchable. Azurite-malachite specimens feature both blue azurite and green malachite minerals, making for a striking combination.
Malachite has a rich history dating back to ancient Egypt, where it was used in jewelry and decor. It was also prized for its ability to be turned back into copper through a process called smelting, making it an important resource for tools, weapons, and coins in the ancient world. Archaeologists have found evidence of malachite mining dating back to 3000 BC.
Decorate your home with the color green! LuxeRox offers velveteen malachite, azurite-malachite, malachite trinket box, and a malachite dish.
