Malachite Ore is used to make Refined Malachite at a smelter. Once turned into Refined Malachite, it is used to create and improve glass armor and glass weapons.

Malachite Ore VeinEdit

Malachite Ore Veins are mined with a pickaxe to obtain Malachite Ore. Each vein, when mined, has a chance to produce a precious gem.


Malachite Ore can be purchased from Blacksmith merchants or manually mined from ore veins. Malachite ore veins are quite rare in Skyrim.

  • In real life, Malachite is a Monoclinic crystal, which is matched in-game, as it is used to make "Glass" weapons and armor.
  • It is the only ore in Skyrim, other than Moonstone, that is actually a crystal rather than a metal.
