About this Piece

Malachite

Malachite is a brightly banded green mineral carbonate that forms deep underground, most often as a result of weathering of copper ores - it is the copper component that gives it it's rich green tone. Archaeological evidence suggests we have been carving out of Malachite as far back as 4,000 BC. Malachite is soft and a little brittle, it is sensitive to both acids and heat and requires gentle care, no chemicals or ultrasonic cleaning, avoid makeup, perfumes and cleaning products.

Tiger's Eye

A semi-precious yellow-brown banded quartz with a silky lustre, so called because of it's similarity to a tigers eye.
