Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral. It forms bands in the monoclinic crystal system, sometimes forming as fibrous, botryoidal, and in stalagmitic masses. Malachite was mined from deposits near the Isthmus of Suez and the Sinai as early as 4000 BCE. Malachite was mined and smelted to make copper in the Timna Valley in Israel as many as 3000 years ago. Malachite can be found worldwide.
