Hand-carved Malachite Box
Malachite is a beautiful green mineral most often found in fissures and hollows near copper deposits, from which it obtains its vibrant hue. Historically, it was prized because of its intensity of color, and was ground into pigments used by painters. It is mined in various places around the world, including Russia and North America, but this material comes from the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa.
Each of these handmade boxes varies slightly in shape, color and pattern, but we have managed to obtain a small number of very select-quality hand-picked pieces.

The box is a lovely item, quite well made and very attractive. It might be advisable to get the dimensions - or have them included on the website. The box, though the medium sized one, was rather small.
