Malachite

Malachite, with its vivid green linear curvatures, had once been said to ward off evil forces and black magic. Derived from “molochites” or mallow in Greek, it is named after a green herb reflective of its natural and fertile appearance. The Ancient Greeks used Malachite to worship Venus and Ancient Romans associated it with Goddess Juno and referred to it as ''the peacock stone''.  It is also known as The Merchant Stone and some believed that malachite can attract wealth and good luck.
