If you're looking to enhance your spiritual practice, Azurite may be the mineral for you!
Azurite is a powerful stone for enhancing spiritual insight and communication with the spiritual realm. It's believed to activate and stimulate the third eye chakra, which governs our intuition and psychic abilities allowing us to connect more deeply with our spiritual self.
Azurite also has a cleansing and purifying effect on the aura and energy field, helping to release negative energy and emotions and promote mental clarity and focus. This can make it a useful stone for energy healing and spiritual cleansing practices.
Geologically, Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral that often forms in copper ore deposits. It has a deep blue colour and is often found alongside other copper minerals like malachite. It's also relatively soft and has a Mohs hardness of 3.5 to 4.
Historically, Azurite has been used in a variety of ways for thousands of years. One of the most common practical uses of Azurite is as a pigment in paint and dyes. Its deep blue colour makes it a popular choice for artists and craftsmen, and it has been used for centuries in painting, textile dyeing, and other decorative arts. Ancient Egyptians used it in their jewellery and artwork, while Native American tribes used it in their spiritual practices. In medieval Europe, it was believed to have healing properties and was used in medicinal remedies. In traditional Chinese medicine, it was used to treat a variety of ailments, including liver and kidney problems, as well as to promote mental clarity and vision.
