The Stone of Heaven
Azurite, also known as the “Stone of Heaven” and by the ancient Greeks “Caeruleum”, is a fairly common crystal found in Australia, Mexico Morocco, Namibia and Russia. It is a copper carbonate mineral and its colour ranges from bright to deep blue to indigo. Azurite-Malachite is blue with patches of green from inclusions of Malachite.
Azurite is a good crystal to use if you are studying as it does not only help to retain information but also has a calming effect which helps to relieve stress and is, therefore, useful when taking exams. It has beneficial effects on the pineal gland where our psychic gifts originate and it was used in ancient times by Native Americans as a sacred stone to communicate with their Spirit Guides. The Mayans are also said to have used it for sacred, mystical communication via thought or telepathy. Its name comes from the old Persian word “lazward,” which means blue colour.
Azurite honours Athena, the Greek Goddess of War and Wisdom, and Sophia, Goddess of Wisdom and Contradiction. Azurite, containing Malachite, honours Isis, who is the Goddess of Life and the daughter of Earth and Sky. Malachite and Azurite bring together the green of the earth and the blue of the sky.
Azurite is primarily associated with the Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) relating to Insight, intuition, awareness and guidance. Its secondary chakra is the Throat Chakra (Vishuddha), related to communication, and this is from where you speak your truth. When used with the throat, it encourages communication from the heart and heightens awareness of spiritual communication. It aligns the chakras and attunes the physical body to the ethereal, dissolving blockages throughout the system.
In crystal healing, Azurite is said to help with symptoms relating to the following illnesses and areas of the body: alleviating bone and joint problems, arthritis, asthma, blood disorders, brain disorders, gall bladder, kidneys, liver disorders, muscle pain, repairs brain cells, rheumatism, sinus congestion, skin infections and irritations, sore throats, spleen, thyroid balance, tinnitus and vertigo.
Emotionally and spiritually, Azurite is said to assist with calming and relieving mental stress, decision making, dissolving energy blockages, kindness, patience, phobias, self-confidence, self-worth and worrying. It also helps with aura balancing, channelling, clairvoyance, communication and connecting with the higher self, cosmic awareness and consciousness. Azurite heals emotional trauma from this lifetime and past lives at a mental level and promotes karmic healing of negative energy patterns brought forward from other lifetimes.
Azurite is not a traditional birthstone but is a modern birthstone for the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius, 22nd November to 21st December, and Capricorn, 22nd December to 19th January.
Azurite is the perfect crystal for meditating with to relax, clear the mind and recognise any intuitive messages that are received. Resting it over your Third Eye chakra while you meditate will clear your mind of intrusive or unwanted thoughts.
Affirmation: I am open to receive guidance from the universe.
Important to Know
WARNING: Azurite is a very soft crystal which can fade quickly in sunlight and intense heat can cause it to change colour irreversibly.
As with all crystals you use regularly, don’t forget to cleanse and recharge it at least once a month.
For crystal healers who use crystals in their work, they should be cleansed after each client to remove any negative energy prior to being used on someone else.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Although the powers of crystals and stones are well documented and have been proven to help bring positivity into people's lives, they are never a substitute for medical advice.
