This Malachite bowl is made of a composite of Malachite slices and crushed malachite. It has been handmade by artisans there and as such, there may be imperfections. Malachite contains copper, making this bowl not food safe. Food should not be placed or stored on it. However, it would make an excellent trinket or jewelry dish and would look stunning on any table. This bowl's base is not completely flat but does stand upright as seen in the photos.
Kindly note that while we take every effort to photograph each photo with the intention of them being as colour accurate as possible, we are unable to control how they will appear on different screens. As stones are natural, there may be some imperfections in them. We have done our best to photograph any imperfections so that you can make an informed decision as well.
