Beautiful, full of character this exotic green stone is the perfect gemstone to set in fine jewellery.
The pre owned/secondhand malachite earrings shown in the photo, are set in high carat yellow gold, are in first class condition, and look new.
This green gemstone has distinct light and dark marbling, that is unmistakable.
Malachite was first used as an adornment in ornamental jewellery, by the ancient Egyptians.
Malachite used to be mined in Russia, but now after extensive mining has depleted the reserves, a lot of it is found and mined in the Congo.
