M for Malachite

Malachite:  A vibrant green stone, malachite takes its color from copper. Large quantities of it have been mined in the Urals in Russia. A favorite material for interior designers, it is used by royals and movie stars alike in palatial settings like Nicholas II’s Malachite Room currently housed in the Hermitage and the opulent home of Hollywood jeweler/designer Tony Duquette. Its bright green hue coupled with the distinctive banding and orbicular pattern create an elegant and rich appearance.
