Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Malachite Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Malachite gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Malachite is light to dark green and banded with green tones. It is copper carbonate and contains an altered form of copper which creates the green color. The amount of water in the copper affects whether or not Malachite will be dark or light with more water making it a lighter green. Some jewelry designers enjoy pairing Malachite with Lapis Lazuli. Protect Malachite from scratches and temperature changes and keep it away from water which removes it polish. Keep acid away from Malachite and do not clean it with anything containing ammonia. A major source for Malachite is Zaire, in the Congo, but it is also found in Australia, Chili, Mexico, Nambia, Zimbabwe, and the U.S.A. Some say that Malachite can be used as a talisman for children to protect them from danger and ward off illness. The regeneration of body cells is said to be aided by Malachite which might also provide extra energy. It is purported to give knowledge and patience while bringing harmony. Some gaze at or hold Malachite, believing it helps calm emotions and relax the nervous system.
