Azurite Azurite is a blue carbonate mineral, chemically composed of copper carbonate hydroxide. It is found associated with green mineral malachite as an aftermath of weathering and oxidation of copper sulfide minerals. The name of the stone is derived from the Arabic word for blue.

Azurite is also commonly called 'Blue Bice' and 'Blue Verditer.' Formerly it was known as Azurro Della Magna, taken from Italian words. The stone turns slightly green when mixed with oil and green-grey, when mixed with egg yolk.

Azurite in beautiful crystals form are found in the United States in the Arizona and New Mexico. In France it is found at Chessy and is sometimes called chessylite. It is used for ornamental purposes, as a dye for paints and fabrics for eons.

The stone is a powerful healing stone which invokes spiritual guidance and opens psychic eye. It is also good for dreams and improving psychic ability. The magnificent color is considered to be unique in the mineral world.
