What is the power of the Malachite stone?
Major chakra, the heart chakra is the fourth chakra. Located between the throat and the breastbone, it acts on the vital organs. It represents our relationships with others and all of our emotions. Thanks to Malachite, this chakra regains its balance. The vibrations of the stone will activate the energies of the body to turn them towards this chakra. In the event of an imbalance of the heart chakra, a feeling of rejection and repoli on oneself can appear.
Located just below the navel, the sacral chakra is the second chakra. For the body, this chakra represents the organs where fluids circulate such as the bladder or the kidneys.

Which stones to associate with Malachite?
In crystal healing, the colour of the stones represents the strength of the energies. Stones with similar colours then have the same virtues. But when it comes to Malachite, its energies are too strong to associate with another stone.
Malachite vampirizes the energies of other stones. By wearing it with Lapis Lazuli or Amethyst, there is a risk these gems lose their saving powers. Malachite is therefore worn alone, but it is sufficient on its own.
How to clean and recharge the Malachite Stone?
All the stones that are used to fight negative energies are cleaned regularly. However, Malachite absorbs energies just as easily as water. This is why to purify it; it should not be put in a water bath. However, it is possible to fumigate the Malachite stone. Just pass it over the smoke of incense, sandalwood or sage.
By dint of being worn, the stone loses its protective energies. To recharge it, you must place the Malachite near a source of natural light. Another method is to bury the stone for a few days in the earth. Thus, it comes into contact with the energies of Nature and recharges itself. Malachite is also recharged with an Amethyst geode.
