During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would usually take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Malachite is a popular stone which has light and dark green opaque banded areas. Malachite is a result of weathering copper ores.
Many beautiful specimens of malachite contain special combinations with other minerals, such as azurite, cuprite, or chrysocolla. Malachite was used in antiquity until about 1800 for green paints.
