From DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), this listing is for a carved and polished elephant. Beautiful, natural patterns cover the entire surface of this wonderfully green creature. There is nothing small about an elephant and this obvious and breathtaking fact must be taken into consideration. There is a clear association, not with ego or grandstanding, but with gravitas. Dignity, intelligence, solemnity, these are traits the elephant possesses and proudly represents.

Malachite is related to Azurite but contains more water. Malachite makes things easier, simply put. Especially things that are of emotional origin. When emotions are eased you can experience life more vividly, more aesthetically and with calm appreciation. Malachite is a mineral that is formed through a secondary process from copper ore deposits, similar to chrysocolla and azurite. In all cultures malachite is dedicated to the goddess - in Egypt to Hathor, in classical times to Aphrodite and Venus, in Northern Europe to Freya. Folklore described it as the midwife stone, but it's also associated with sensuality, beauty and an appreciation for aesthetics and the arts. What I am certain of is that we are lucky to have it.
