Egyptians began mining Malachite as early as 4000 BC. Malachite was worn to protect against black magic and sorcery, so the ancient Greeks made amulets for children. Malachite is generally found in the weathered zones of nearly all copper deposits. Many copper prospectors seek Malachite, which indicates a good mining opportunity for copper.
