Cool Facts: Malachite is a green copper carbonate hydroxide mineral with a chemical composition of Cu2(CO3)(OH)2. It was one of the first ores used to produce copper metal. Our specimens are sourced from the Congo which extensively mines the material for its copper content. Thus getting specimen grade material is quite difficult. Pliny the Elder, 79 CE used the ancient term Molochitus but by 1661 the revised spelling was widely adopted as Malachite. Malachite has a widely variable habit ranging from botryoidal, silky, and stalactite like forms.
