The vivid green of Malachite is associated with nature and the beauty of earth. City dwellers may find this beneficial when they aren't able to get out into the great outdoors but want to connect back to the energy of nature. This signature green is a byproduct of the copper included in its composition, making this stone excellent for conducting or amplifying energies. Malachite asks that we step out of our comfort zone and take risks that are associated with our own personal growth. Also known as a protection stone for travellers, malachite is said to soften the stresses that come with travel.
