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 have purchased many gems from this company and am always very pleased with the quality of gems and their cuts. Each time I am pleasantly surprised by how quickly I receive them! I will order again and again. Always very happy with them!!
I enjoy this newsletter for the information and descriptions of the gems as well as all the history and myths surrounding the various gems. This newsletter makes me wish I was young so I could study to be a gemologist!
Excellent will be returning to make more purchases! Ordered one sapphire and one tourmaline, both arrived within 3 working days and appeared to be the exact stones shown in both pictures.Smooth transaction and very well set out website, easy to use and informative. Will definately be buying more gems from Gemselect. Gems are a little darker than they appear on the website.
