Malachite helps to build self confidence and facilitate the release of old traumas and outgrown patterns and beliefs. It can activate the chakras, but is particularly beneficial for the heart chakra (especially when paired with rose quartz). Malachite will help us to see our self worth, strengthen our willpower, and assist with staying with commitments - both to ourselves and others. Malachite can also protect from negative energies by absorbing them; it should be cleansed afterwards (no salt, as it can damage the stone).
Malachite is toxic if ingested, so do not use for gem elixirs unless utilizing the indirect method.
