Jami is a crystal shop run by a cute couple named João AMetista and Ida (hence Jami). You write into it The Portugal News every month and slowly but surely let us delve into the world of crystals and give us one sparkling stone after another to think about.
Her shop in downtown Faro is usually full of all kinds of wonderful gems. However, after recently having a baby girl named Luz (‘light’ in Portuguese), they decided to close the shop for a few months to get used to life as new parents – but also to have more space create to come back with even more crystals.
We will definitely let you know when they reopen, however Meanwhile, you can still order online and if you want to learn more, please follow them on Facebook (@Jami – Healing Energy) or Instagram (@jami_minerals) or visit their website www.jami.pt.
Malachite is a very special crystal as it is used for healing purposes. In fact, if you don’t know which crystal to use, they say use malachite.
It is a copper ore and is used in the electronics industry, and the globular or striped green patterns inspire hope.
Where to find it
In Portugal we can find small amounts.
The main mining takes place in Nizhny Tagil in the Ural Mountains of Russia, in Chessy near Lyon in France, Shaba in the Republic of Congo as well as in China and Morocco. In these last two countries it is often found in combination with azurite, giving rise to what is known as azure malachite. Elsewhere they may be associated with chrysocolla, forming malacola.
Energetically and therapeutically, it helps restore health in general.
Along with chrysocolla and moonstone, it is very effective in preventing and treating any type of cancer.
It helps with all types of pain, but especially in recovering from illness and surgery.
how to use
We can put it on the pain site or on the heart for about 15 minutes every day, or carry it around with us every day when we are ill.
However, if it is worn with us or placed on the body, it should be polished – as you should avoid inhaling its dust as it is toxic.
If it causes palpitations, remove and replace with rose quartz or rhodonite.
benefits for animals
In animals and plants alike, it promotes healing, both in relieving pain and in preventing and recovering from disease.
In addition, it helps to stimulate the relationship with the caretaker and other animals.
The proof is in the healing
Whenever we get sick or need to activate the healing, Malachite is always our first choice.
The two cases where we found it helped the most were the recovery of our rabbit Sara, who contracted a bacterial disease as a baby and almost didn’t survive – she is now 4.5 years old and super healthy.
Another situation was with Ida’s father. He was hospitalized for more than 3 months for diabetes and atherosclerosis. He suffered the amputation of two toes and had a poor prognosis.
He always had his crystals with him including malachite and today after 3 years we can’t believe those months have passed as he is living a normal and healthy life.
Another property is protection against traffic accidents, which is why we recommend using a crystal in the car along with black tourmaline (a protective crystal against negative energy) and blue lace agate (which helps maintain the driver’s focus and concentration).
