Since traveling to South Africa last year, I have become simply smitten with malachite. While in Cape Town, my mother and I discovered a local treasure trove of a shop filled floor to ceiling with this magnificent mineral. From precious jewels to contemporary boxes, the intense green tones and contrasting colored bands called my name. So what piece did I select you ask? A gorgeous malachite letter opener to add a kick of color to my desk! Inspired by my travels, here is a little taste of malachite mania. Enjoy!
