Malachite was appreciated as a gemstone by the Ancient Egyptians who began mining the green stone as early as 4000 BC to produce gemstones, pigments, and sculptures.

Malachite also has been discovered in archaeological remains from the ancient Egyptians, ancient Greeks, and ancient Romans who used it for amulets and jewelry and would even grind it down to make a vibrantly green eyeshadow.

but The most famous Malachite gemstone is not in fact a gemstone but part of the decorations in St Petersburg at the Winter Palace. At The Winter Palace, Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna decorated a room referred to as the Malachite room in the 1830s. Inside this room, visitors are overwhelmed with opulent Malachite vases, full fireplace panels constructed of Malachite, and ornamental Malachite columns.
