Metaphysically, Azurite is a lovely Third Eye Chakra stone
Metaphysically, Azurite is a lovely Third Eye Chakra stone, awakening psychic abilities and helping the user to recognise intuition and spiritual guidance when it occurs. Physically, Azurite increases blood-oxygen levels; repairs brain cells, alleviates bone and joint problems and eases sore throats. Azurite also helps heal the kidneys, gall bladder and thyroid.
Azurite is also believed to clear and expand the mind, helping you to let go of programmed beliefs and to gain new perspectives. In addition it is said to stimulate memory, to encourage self-expression and to help reduce over-talking caused by nervousness.
Azurite is thought to be beneficial in overcoming phobias and for giving insight into the source of the phobias.
In healing, Azurite is said to help the throat, arthritis and joint problems. Azurite is also believed to have a special resonance with the mind, helping to heal mental stress and to alleviate worry and grief.
Azurite Crystals are rare and highly sought after. The beautiful blue colour (from which Azurite got its name) is so deep that it is difficult for light to be refracted through the crystal.
Azurite is one of the most recognized species in the mineral kingdom.
AZURITE FORMS – CRYSTALS & NODULES
Usually occurs in small crystals which are in prismatic, tabular, or equi-dimensional form. Crystals are sometime striated. Other forms are massive, crusty, radiating, fibrous, earthy, columnar, stalactitic, as thin needles, and in ball-like aggregates. Also occurs in dense groups of tabular or prismatic crystals. Azurite may also form as a pseudo morph over other minerals, retaining the original crystal shape of the mineral that it formed a pseudo morph over. Transparency Opaque. Rarely translucent.
Large rounded nodule of beautifully bright blue Azurite. This one is unopened, though similar nodules have been cut open, in the same fashion as is done to a thunder egg or geode, to reveal brilliant azurite crystals.
This beautiful Nodular specimen is a complete Azurite “flower” – sometimes referred to as a rosette. It consists of an aggregate of radiating bladed crystals that emanate from a central point or line. It has a rather dull pearly lustre. The rosette is opaque, showing only faintly dim translucence through the exposed blades on its edges. This Azurite rosette is not affixed to any host rock. It is made up of short, bladed crystals that seem to have a pearly lustre on their visible faces, and are only dimly translucent at best. The crystals show a very uniform, symmetrical arrangement in the cluster. There are also tiny, globules of dull pale bluish-green, most likely Malachite, on one section of the cluster, peeping from beneath the Azurite crystals.
