Azurite Meaning and Healing Properties
Introduction to Azurite
Azurite is popular because of its beautiful deep blue. It has a dazzling blue edge, which is the key to its healing power. Azurite is produced in the oxidation zone of copper ore, and is often associated with the green mineral malachite. Their chemical composition is also very similar. In the Middle Ages, powdered azurite was used as a paint for painting or dyeing. However, azurite is easily oxidized to malachite after absorbing moisture in the air. This explains why the sky is green in many early Renaissance paintings. The specimen in which the two minerals of malachite and azurite coexist together is an excellent gemstone used to clear deep-rooted emotions. The world’s best large crystal azurite is currently produced in Namibia.
