In times of yore, malachite was considered a precious stone in Russia, and jewelry was made for members of the royal family and the court. The mineral is so sumptuously colored, with its delicate threads of emerald and turquoise, that jewelry with genuine malachite inserts is intensely lovely, and able to satisfy the tastes of the true connoisseur.
