Malachite's most striking physical property is its green colour that does not fade over time or when exposed to light. All specimens of the mineral are green and range from a pastel green, to a bright green, to an extremely dark green that is almost black. Malachite has been used as a gemstone and sculptural material for thousands of years and is still popular today, often cut into cabochons or beads for jewellery use. Its ability to be easily ground to a powder made Malachite a preferred pigment and colouring agent for thousands of years.
