Azurite in its natural state
Azurite is a beautiful deep blue mineral. This colour speaks for itself because this crystal's name comes from a Persian word lazhward, which means "blue colour". It often occurs with Malachite, which may form green stains or specks on Azurite crystals. The two mixed minerals are called "Azure-malachite", sometimes shortened azurmalachite.
Azurite helps in activating the third eye chakra. Its dark blue energy makes excellent union with this energy centre and can give you psychic gifts such as clairvoyance and intuition. Furthermore, its vibration has a strong effect on the brain's intellectual functions, and it has a powerful energy that can boost your memory. This crystal is beneficial for anyone who is studying as it is helpful to aid you to retain information. Azurite's healing properties can help clear away stress and worry; it eases sadness and grief, brings more light to your life. It helps to control your fears and phobias. Moreover, crystal enables you to understand why these emotions came to you in the first place.
Meditate with the stone. Hold it in your hands and ask it to help you to restore balance and control over your emotions, when you need it. Or use it as a guide during your practices which shows you a deeper understanding of life.
