I've been drawn to the rich swirling greens of malachite for years. The bright hits of turquoise shining through the deep bands of emerald green- it's a vivid and alluring semi-precious stone that has been used in jewelry and home decor for decades. Luckily when I was in Cape Town I stumbled upon a stall in the craft market on the waterfront selling nothing but malachite.
I snapped up an oval dish that currently houses some glass cherries in my room. Isn't it pretty? Below are some other gorgeous malachite finds that I'd be happy to own:
This Jean Schlumberger Egg Charm, $800 from Tiffany's looks like an antique treasure. I would hang it from a long gold chain for an exotic everyday look.
Cole and Son's Fornasetti Collection Malachite Wallpaper is so dramatic! I could see it in a small powder room.
These Sherle Wagner Bathroom Accessories are a perfect way to inject a brilliant dose of colour into a room. You could use the garbage and tissue cover in a home office or use the stunning knobs on any cabinetry.
On the fashion front, this Michael Kors Malachite Print Slip Skirt, $795 is gorgeous! I love the cut and the
This vintage Four Door "Malachite" and Cane Wrapped Cabinet, $6800 from 1st Dibs is so fabulous! I love how the vignette is styled.
It would look so opulent as upholstery on the Palmer chair from Baker's Duquette collection.
