Mined since 4,000 BC by the ancient Egyptians, malachite is said to bring peace and restore harmony to the wearer. Combined with onyx, the defender against all negative and unhappy emotions, our sterling silver, malachite and onyx necklace measures a total length of 21 1/2 inches. The substantial 3 1/2 inch heart shaped pendant is engraved on both sides with a large onyx and small malachite stone in the middle of the front face. All accents, as well as the heavy clasp, are sterling silver and the Nepalese pendant is done in mixed white/silver metal. The matching earrings are sold separately.
