Azurite is a copper carbonate hydroxide of the carbonate class of minerals. It comes in various shades of bright or deep blue or indigo. It may also contain streaks of light blue and is opaque in appearance. Azurite-Malachite is blue with patches of green from inclusions of Malachite. It is almost always found in its raw state, as it is extremely difficult to tumble. The tumbled varieties are usually ground down and compressed Azurite pieces.


General Information & Legends

The name Caeruleum comes from Latin meaning blue and the name Azurite comes from the old Persian word lāžward which means blue colour. Azurite is a good crystal to use if you are studying to aid focus and concentration as well as helping to retain information but it also has a calming effect that helps to relieve stress and is therefore useful for exams, interviews and presentations. It allows the user to be compassionate to themselves as well as to show compassion to others.


It is known for its ability to awaken and enhance psychic development as well as helping you recognise what in your life needs attention. Keep it with you if you need to sense when someone is trying to mislead you. Historically, over thousands of years, Azurite was ground into a powder to use to make dye to colour fabric and paint, which was a way of denoting status. It is said that the Atlanteans and the Ancient Egyptians considered it to be such a potent psychic stone that only the highest Priests and Priestesses could know its secrets.


The Mayans were said to have used it to transfer knowledge via telepathy. Native Americans used it to aid communication and better understand the messages from their Spirit Guides and it is said that the Greeks and Romans used it for visionary powers, hypnosis and healing ceremonies.

Azurite is a very soft crystal which can fade quickly in sunlight and intense heat can cause it to change colour irreversibly.


Cleanse your crystals regularly.
