Is Malachite Jewelry Eco Friendly?
It can be, and I am careful to source all of my jewelry materials from eco-friendly providers.
One of the best things about Malachite is that, despite having been mined for a long time since humans have admired this stone since ancient times, a lot of the original sources of Malachite are still producing!
That’s in part because one of the major components of Malachite stones is Copper, which is relatively abundant. It’s also the Copper that’s responsible for the bright green colors!
How Can You Tell If Malachite Is Real?
There is a lot of fake Malachite out there, but a lot of it is actually pretty easy to spot. Resin fakes often aren’t the right colors of green.
Another good tell is if the Malachite contains both bands and blotches of color. Natural formations aren’t necessarily very neat, which results in highly varied banding that is difficult to mimic in fake stones.
Lastly, look for imperfections. If the pattern is too regular, there are no imperfections, and every band of color is the exact same width, it’s probably fake.
I work to make sure all the natural stones I use in my handmade jewelry are real, and that includes my handmade Malachite jewelry.
Is Your Malachite Jewelry Hypoallergenic? Is Your Malachite Jewelry Made In The USA?

I work hard to use only hypoallergenic and nickel-free materials in my jewelry.
I also make all of my jewelry, including my handmade Malachite earrings and necklaces here in the United States, in my workshop in Colorado.
