Malachite helps you battle against depression or anxiety and helps you break negative patterns of behaviour. It is a very protective and supportive stone that helps you overcome challenges or unforseen circumstances.
It is known that if you speak your fears aloud while you hold the crystal, and then leave Malachite at a sheltered place outdoors overnight, your fears will be carried away by the wind.
Note: Malachite is toxic, do take care to wash your hands after handling this stone.
