Azurite Malachite Druze Specimen | Rare Earth Gallery

Azurite Malachite is an extremely intriguing stone, the Azurites bold indigo hues and distinct crystallization, along with malachite's Mesmerizing Ombre banding of deep jungle green and warm seafoam. Sometimes the stones will have a natural sparkling druze and rough exterior. 
In ancient Egypt, Azurite--as a component of lapis lazuli--was used to create the protective blue eye of Horus. It was also ground for use as the pigment "mountain blue," "Armenian stone" or "Azurro Della Magna." Many medieval paintings of the Virgin Mary in a blue robe were long thought to be painted using lapis lazuli; chemical analysis has since indicated that azurite was used instead, from the well-known mines in France. Malachite was ground into eyeshadow powder (unfortunately toxic), and referred to their love goddess Hathor as "the lady of malachite." They thought wearing malachite around their heads and arms protected them from epidemics.
