|Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral that forms in masses, stalactites, botryoidal, and short prismatic crystals. Azurite in crystal form is extremely rare and expensive, but truly unique. This mineral was named in 1824 by F.S. Beaudant for its true blue color. Azurite has been widely used throughout history, during the early nineteenth century it was referred to as “Chessylite” (after the area in which it was first found in eastern France) and “Kuanos” by Gaius Plinius Secundus in the book, “Natural History”. This stone has had a number of different uses where in Ancient Egypt, Azurite was used for paint, treating certain mental disorders, and smelted to create copper. A highly sought after crystal in the world of gemstones, Azurite is known for its stunning blue color, which evolved over the millennia through reactions between copper, hydrogen, carbonate, and oxygen. Azurite features deep contrasting shades of blue, which comes from its fusion with Malachite, a closely related mineral that contains nearly the same chemistry.
In crystal healing, Azurite is a gem when it comes to enhancing creativity and inner wisdom because it cleanses and activates the third eye chakra. Azurite is often referred to as the “Stone of the Heavens,” as it aids in the pursuit of the heavenly self. It is believed to awaken psychic abilities, helping you to recognize intuition and spiritual guidance. It calms and relieves mental stress, helping you to clear your mind and dissolve any blocked energy.
