Found in Africa, United States, Brazil, Russia, Peru, Chile and Australia this stone has been named from the Greek word "hmalache", meaning "mallow" like the leaves of a medicinal plant. Malachite was used by the Egyptians as decorative pieces of jewelry combined with copper. Egyptians felt malachite held mystical powers. In Switzerland and the French Alp many wear Malachite crosses as a symbol of good luck to pregnant women. Malachite is dedicated to Saint Francis of the Assisi. Legend has it that Malachite worn will help one to understand animals and be able to communicate with them. Malachite is related to females and their problems. Malachite also aids in cold sweats, Parkinson's disease, asthma, intestinal problems, body pain, and memory loss according to metaphysicists.
