Malachite Cuff Bracelet #10553
Nature forms malachite into stalactites; lapidarians cut and polish the stone into sizes and shapes we can use in jewelry. If the stalactite is cut lengthwise, the light and dark green pattern show up as stripes. If it is cut crosswise, the bands appear as circles or swirls. So every piece will be different. These deep greens have been cherished for centuries. We know that ancient Egyptians ground it into a powder and used it for eye make up. It will be easier for you to wear this beautiful piece as a bracelet rather than as eye shadow, and the circlular pattern will still be evident.
