The name "malachite" comes from the Greek for 'mallow', in reference to the stone's leaf green coloring. Displaying swirling concentric eye-like rings resembling a 'peacock eye,' malachite was often used as a protection against the ""evil eye,"" and was used in the fight against sorcery and black magic in the Middle Ages. We're so enchanted by this malachite jewelry, we've featured this one-of-a-kind gemstone across lockets, delicate stacking bracelets and rings for a striking finish. Partnered with refined 18 carat yellow gold vermeil makes for the perfect color combination. At Astley Clarke, we're also proud to say every precious and semi-precious stone within our gemstone jewelry collection has been hand-finished, polished and set with meticulous attention to detail.
