Size: 2 1/8"x 1".
Azurite is a copper carbonate hydroxide of the mineral class carbonate and develops in copper deposits where it can be found with malachite. Where there is azurite there will also be malachite unless the deposit of azurite is quite young because over eons the the copper that is present in the crystal oxidises and the crystal transforms into malachite. Azurite is also frequently found with chrysocolla.
Due to the high copper content in the crystal, crystal water must be made using the indirect method. In Ancient Egypt, azurite was so sacred that only the priests knew and guarded its secrets. They used it in the inner sanctum to understand the will of the gods. It has been linked with the lost wisdom of Atlantis. Azurite crystals are irregular blades with wedge shaped terminations.
I ensure that I only use real stones, therefore, each stone and silver wrap is a unique piece of artwork, no two pieces are alike. They are all unique and handmade by me. It is made with tender, love and care. If you have a stone you want wrapped, I can do that for you. I do customized orders, if you want anything else let me know.
