What a rich history malachite has, but rarely has ever looked so beautiful and appealing.
Malachite is a copper based ore - hence its green colour- and has always been highly valued since being mined in Britain 3,800 years ago often for use in jewellery.
It has always been seen to have metaphysical properties, and associated with balance, abundance and transformation.
Certainly, this image taken with a Nikon digital microscope provides a transformatory view of malachite becasue until a few years ago it was invisible to the naked eye.
Now we think it and makes a wonderful scarf, and we were pleased Liberty agreed with us. We hope you do too.
