Malachite

 Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, with the formula Cu2CO3(OH)2. This opaque, green banded mineral crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system, and most often forms botryoidal, fibrous, or stalagmitic masses, in fractures and spaces, deep underground, where the water table and hydrothermal fluids provide the means for chemical precipitation. Individual crystals are rare but do occur as slender to acicular prisms. Pseudomorphs after more tabular or blocky azurite crystals also occur.[3] Typical malachite is laminated and whether or not microbes intervene in its formation is unknown.
Malachite often results from weathering of copper ores and is often found together with azurite (Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2), goethite, and calcite. Except for its vibrant green color, the properties of malachite are similar to those of azurite and aggregates of the two minerals occur frequently. Malachite is more common than azurite and is typically associated with copper deposits around limestones, the source of the carbonate.

 What makes it even more wonderful is its beautiful bands and rings that can make each stone look unique. The stone is either opaque when it is in a massive form or can be translucent when in its crystal form. Usually Malachite is found in oxidized copper deposits and can be found in the following forms; botryoidal, reniform and stalactites.
