Azurite Unprocessed Stones

Azurite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral with a chemical composition of Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2. It is best known for its characteristic blue color that results from the inclusion of Copper in the mineral. Well shaped crystals of azurite do exist but sell for thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. In these stones the azurite crystals are granular and do not show any crystal shape. 

Description of these Azurite Unprocessed Stones

Abstractly shaped nodular stones that vary from rich blue to green-blue (malachite colour). Some stones are almost completely rich blue but most have patches of rich blue and patches of green-blue as well as patches of light coloured impurities. The green-blue coloured sections are actually malachite. Both malachite and azurite form under similar conditions and when they are intergrown the material is called azurmalachite. The colour of the stones is dramatically highlighted when the stones are wet or when they are coated in a clear resin.

Where items are approximately spherical the size refers to their diameter. Where items are long and thin (such as crystal or blade shapes) or any other shape, then the size refers to their largest dimension. It is important to see the pictures to know exactly what the appearance is. Our pictures do not showcase the best, they are as realistic as possible and include a R1 coin to demonstrate the actual size.
