Decorating with Malachite

Malachite is a green psychedelic type swirl pattern in a stone that was made popular in the 70's. I usually associate this pattern with luxurious black and gold interiors similar to Tony Duquette's style. His love and interest for this stone translated into dishes, bound books, floors and tablescapes and made this style popular. While Malachite walls may not be for everyone a touch of Malachite through a frame, book, decorative box or unpolished specimen may add a little touch to your home.
