Azurite and Malachite Specimen
Bright blue and emerald green, what a combo. This piece definitely needs to be in your collection.
Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral with a hardness of 3.5 to 4. Its name is derived from its deep azure blue color. 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.
Malachite is a copper carbonate mineral with a monoclinic crystal system and a hardness of 3.5 to 4. Its name comes from the Greek word for its color, malache (mallow). Good Malachite is found in Russia and Africa. Malachite is one of the most important stones for protection from negative energies. It permeates the auric field with positive vibrations and strengthens the natural energetic “shell” which can screen out hostile forces, and it activates the “psychic radar” with which one feels the presence of danger.
