Vintage 1970s malachite gemstone green bead graduated necklace jewelry

Want jewellery that may actually keep you cool? Look no further than the gorgeous malachite gemstone. The way it’s chemically made up means that it always feels cold to the touch, and rarely warms up (you can also use this tip for identifying real malachite from imitations – if your ‘malachite’ starts to warm up to your hands temperature when held, it could be a sign that it’s fake – real malachite takes a long time to warm up – it’s a cold gemstone. In fact, many gemstones have this ‘cold’ quality, including some quartz).
