Malachite pendant


Malachite gemstone in ancient times was believed to ward off disease, lightning and witchcraft. 


Today it is believed to absorb negative energy and to guard against radiation...


 ...and to release old traumas.


Even the World Cup Trophy has a malachite base.


This malachite pendant I was wearing on Friday was made in my workshop two years ago for my mum's name day. I used 925 sterling silver and this marvelous gemstone. I chose malachite because my mum's eyes have its color. Well, my eyes don't but some times I can't resist and I borrow the pendant. 

Thank you, mum, for the inspiration (and for allowing me to wear it)!

Πανέμορφος ο μαλαχίτης! Δεν το ήξερα ότι η βάση του τρόπαιου του Μουντιάλ αποτελείτο από αυτό το υλικό!
Υ.Γ.: Είδες τι καλή μαμά έχεις; Και σε εμπνέει και σε αφήνει να φοράς τα κοσμήματα της!

Malachaite is just beautiful. And the Pendant is breathtaking. I bought some really pretty Turquoise stones from Leh. And plan to use them in some hand made jewellery.
