Malachite is a copper carbonate and is recognized by the fibrous bands and swirls of varying shades of green from light to dark (almost black). It is often found in combination with another copper-based mineral Azurite.
It gets its green color from chromium and usually has an opaque or translucent clarity. This gemstone can come in crystal form which is much more translucent than the normal mass stone variety. Because of its deep rich greens, this stone looks similar to certain types of Jade. While Jade is much more valuable than this stone, you would be hard-pressed to find someone that didn’t think this stone was as beautiful as Jade.
Malachite is found in many regions all over the world. Some of the more popular places where Malachite is found and mined are the Ural Mountains of Russia, Namibia, Shaba, South Australia including Brisbane, Germany, Romania, Mexico, and Arizona and New Mexico in the United States.
Regarding size, usually, huge chunks of Malachite are found in the above regions. They are not usually found in very small sizes such as other types of rare gemstones or minerals.
