Malachite is a tall fusion, possessing four legs (which are actually arms, but instead function as legs), and two regular arms. She has four eyes and pointed teeth. Her hair is a light mint green color, and is styled in the shape of a star (the crystal gems' symbol) similarly to Lion and Alexandrite. Her two torsos are that of Lapis Lazuli's, but darker, and her chest resembles Jasper's stripes. Her gemstones are located on her nose and back.
Due to being a fusion, Malachite's personality is a twisted combination of aspects of both Jasper's and Lapis' character traits. While little is known about her, it is clear that Malachite shares Jasper's disdain for the Crystal Gems and wished to see them destroyed. However, Lapis' consciousness was shown to be the most dominate as she was able to overpower Jasper's.

- Malachite proved that consent is needed from both/all Gems to fuse when Jasper said, "Just say yes..." to Lapis before they fused. If she didn't need permission, she very well could've forced her to fuse.
