Malachite is a very special stone with its amazing patterns in deep and pale greens. With this tray we have used the malachite in conjunction with a rose gold plate which follows the tradition of combining the stone with gilt metal. The rich and powerful have been have been using this malachite and gilt combination millenniums.
Craftsmen and artists have also been creating faux malachite products for centuries to recreate luxury of the real stone. For example the traditional method to do this is by painting malachite like swirls in different shades of green. Eventually a few very ago I worked out a method of creating a really realistic faux malachite using photography. As you can see from the mirror, the results are amazing.
The Alexandra malachite drinks tray is a glamorous contemporary addition to any living room. Indeed we love to combine it with our Alexandra Malachite Round Mirror and our malachite placemats and coasters.
