Malachite is a copper carbonate with distinctive green veining. Though not a particularly hard stone, it takes an excellent polish. Malachite is usually found near copper ore deposits. The most famous malachite mines were in the Ural mountains in Russia, where 20 ton blocks were once taken from the quarries to decorate the palaces of the Russian tsars. Today malachite is a scarcer material and the most important producer is the Congo (formerly known as Zaire).
I've bought stones from gemselect for two years now and just couldn't be happier. So much better than haggling with jewelers or pecking through rock shops! Videos of the stones in question and rapid turnaround time just seal the deal. Will buy again and will recommend again.
I have always been skeptical of ordering fine items online for fear of disappointment. Today, Thursday April 26, I received the blue sapphire which I ordered on Monday, April 23. Not only was I impressed with the rapid delivery of my sapphire, but I was very pleased with the way the stone was packaged and protected. The sapphire itself was far better quality than I had anticipated and it will make a beautiful centerpiece for the ring I'm having made. Thanks so much for the great experience...
