Malachite: The Transformation Stone

Malachite powers are incredibly versatile.  Because of this, it’s oftentimes known as the transformation stone. It absorbs negative energy, encourages self-expression, increases happiness, helps joint pain and aids travel sickness. It’s also been known to be very good for pain-free childbirth. Malachite, when used in jewelry for necklaces and bracelets, produces exquisite pieces that are earthy and deep. I recommend it not only for jewelry, but placing a single stone in your pocket or under your pillow at night to promote self-confidence, expression, and decrease in negative thoughts and feelings. 

What is Malachite Used For?

Since it’s a stone of transformation, it helps aid change and spiritual evolution. It has powers for deep energy cleansing and will help the carrier become an overall more spiritual and happy person. If you’ve felt down, or unhappy over the last little while – Malachite can help restore your energy. Going through some deep changes, mental or physical? Malachites powers can help.

It helps with clearing and activates all chakras, as well as balance them. Malachite is a stone that bridges the energy of the heart and root chakras. It is particularly useful for balancing and clearing the heart chakra, therefore, it helps balance pure love, romance, and one’s own well-being.

Malachite is a stone of good fortune and prosperity/abundance, too.

Malachite is also a very protective stone, being especially helpful for:

  • General protection
  • Protection from evil
  • Protection during pregnancy and childbirth
  • Protection for children 
  • Protection during flying and other travel

It can decrease a person’s tendency to radiation illness, asthma, arthritis, and tumors. Because of this, Malachite is also good for enhancing emotional stability and balance in general.


You need to be careful when working with Malachite, as its toxic in its raw form. Please make sure your stone is both tumbled and polished. If you wear it constantly, note that it has been known to shatter in times of great stress for the wearer. Do not fear, as this just means your emotions are overpowering the Malachite. If this happens, you need to increase your cleansing negative energy stones, such as Smokey Quartz & Black Onyx.
