Malachite is very often “reconstituted” which means it has been re-formed from malachite powder or dust into the shape of beads, cabochons, what have you. The malachite we use in our jewelry at Stone&Hide is never reconstituted. We only use the highest of quality genuine malachite. The difference can be seen in the naturally occurring orb patterns in the stone as well as the weight - reconstituted malachite is much lighter than natural malachite. The rich green gem is a protective crystal and absorbs negative energies from the body. Malachite encourages spiritual growth and helps to expand your awareness. It encourages empathy and helps ease depression and anxiety.
The easiest way to measure your wrist is to use a piece of string or anything really - simply wrap it around your wrist then measure how long the string is with a ruler or tape measure.
We have only these options listed in our size menu for bracelets, however we are happy to oblige any additional sizing requirements - for instance if your wrist is larger than 8.5”, simply choose the largest option on our size menu and then add a note at checkout for us to adhere to your actual wrist measurement.
Any additional sizing requirements will be fulfilled so long as you submit a request in a note to us at checkout - or you can email us at : firstname.lastname@example.org
