Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral with a hardness of 3.5 to 4. Its name is derived from its deep azure blue colour. Its crystal system is monoclinic. It is found in Australia, China, Chile, Russia and the USA.
Azurite powerfully stimulates the third eye chakra. It is a stone of inner vision and can be used for the enhancement of dreams and the development of psychic powers. It can stimulate intellect as well as intuition and can aid the assimilation and retention of new information and ideas. Azurite can also facilitate the agility of mind required to make conceptual leaps and reach new insights.
Azurite can strengthen the astral and etheric bodies, making one less vulnerable to psychic attack or attachments. It can be used to seal “holes” in the aura, thus alleviating tendencies to succumb to fatigue. It stimulates all the mind centres, nourishing within the self a keen interest in all aspects of one’s life and function in society. It is an excellent antidote to boredom since it opens one’s inner eye to a wide array of connections and possibilities. It is a stone of synthesis, whereby the discovery of new commonalities and links between different ideas leads to higher levels of understanding of life and the world.
Azurite blends well with Malachite, Cuprite, Chrysocolla, Turquoise, Rainbow Moonstone, Sunstone, Red Aventurine, Carnelian, Azeztulite, Phenacite, Brookite, Natrolite, Scolecite and Moldavite
