Malachite is a very special stone and because of its amazing patterns in deep and pale greens. Because of its qualities it is has used for luxury decorations and ornaments by the rich and powerful for millennium. Commonly it was used in conjunction with gilt metal to set off the shades of green.
Craftsmen and artists have been creating faux malachite products for centuries to recreate luxury of the real stone. Normally it is achieved by painting malachite like swirls in different shades of green. A few very ago I finally worked out a method of creating a really realistic faux malachite using photography. As you can see from the Sophie box, the results are amazing.
A word of caution with my interior designer’s hat on, the shades of green are strong and vibrant so it is best not to use it in excess.
The Sophie Box in malachite of course comes in our fabulous Forwood Design gift packaging. We like to combine it with our Jules malachite drinks tray. If you’re looking for a real malachite statement piece, check out our stunning malachite and gilt wall mirrors.
