Azurite is an opaque and deep azure-blue crystal that may sometimes be bright blue. It is usually found in a mass or a flatter crystal and often has a glassy luster. This crystal has an earthy, rough texture in natural form.
Azurite has been called the “Stone of Heaven” that aids in the “pursuit of the heavenly self”. Indigenous Cultures used Azurite as a sacred stone for communication with Indian Spirit Guides, and the Mayans were said to have used it for sacred, mystical communication via thought.
Metaphysically, Azurite is a lovely Third Eye Chakra stone, awakening psychic abilities and helping you to recognize intuition and spiritual guidance when it occurs. Azurite is useful in meditation to clear the mind, promote deep introspection and visualization, and allow clear recognition of intuitive messages that are received.
Azurite infuses intellectual logic with love, fostering compassion for oneself and others. Used with the Throat Chakra, Azurite encourages communication from the heart and heightens awareness of Spiritual communication. Azurite can help dissolve energy blockages, communication blockages, as well as blockages to your own progress.
Helpful in relieving worries, phobias, and nagging negative thoughts, Azurite also helps you to recognize the areas in your life that needs attention.
Physically, Azurite increases blood-oxygen levels; repairs brain cells, alleviates bone and joint problems and eases sore throats. Azurite also helps heal the kidneys, gall bladder and thyroid.
