Detailed Description 

Malachite is one of the most beautiful stones in the world because of its different shades of green that are blended in colorful bands throughout the stone. Malachite is one of the oldest known stones, used for thousands of years for its healing and transforming properties. Malachite was considered to be a talisman for children. If a piece of the stone were attached to an infant's cradle, all evil spirits were held aloof and the child slept soundly and peacefully.  The stone is similar in structural appearance to Turquoise which makes it nearly impossible to find a piece large enough to make knife handles. However, as in the case of Turquoise the stone can be reconstituted by grinding it to a powder then adding a binding agent then dried. This makes beautiful slabs of Malachite which can then be used for knife handles.
