A WORD OF CAUTION ABOUT MALACHITE: Malachite is NOT to be placed in water – so if you are having
a water birth and wearing the stone as a necklace for example, remove the necklace BEFORE entering the water
or having a shower. Malachite contains copper, which actually aids with it’s healing properties, but it can possibly
leach from the stone in toxic amounts when wet. It is best to get polished Malachite, not raw, as the polishing
helps to seal the stone. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing the stone, simply place the stone in your birthing
room and the energy will resonate that way as well.
