Azurite is a soft, deep blue mineral produced by weathering copper ore deposits. In the 19th century Azurite was known as chessylite for the certain type locality at Chessy-les-mines near Lyon France. Azurite has a long history of healing, being mentioned in Pliny the elder’s Natural history. Azurite blue is particularly deep and clear. For this reason, the mineral has tended to be associated since with the deep blue of desert and winter skies.
Azurite is long associations with guiding psychic development and increase metaphysical powers, especially when placed on the third eye. The Ancient Egyptians favored azurite for its abilities to facilitate raising the user’s consciousness to its highest levels, communing with the Gods in their temples Azurite can bring strong multidimensional cellular reprogramming. For this reason it is considered a very powerful healing stone and energy conduit. Azurite creates better connections between the mind and body. In addition, with its high copper content, azurite increases energy flows through the body, including the nervous system. Azurite allows for out-of-body experiences to process safely. Azurite challenges the user’s view of reality, forcing them to release preconceived notions and belief systems. This stone eases the nervous speaker to speak confidently, and slowly and deliberate intention. It draws out emotional debris and ancient fears, it cleanses the emotions and brings about inner peace. If a crisis occurs in life (and there will be one) Azurite gently brings you back into balance.
