Azurite is an Azure to dark blue secondary copper mineral that is frequently pseudomorphed to, (and found with), Malachite. Azurite is in the monoclinic crystal system, and has a Mohs hardness of around 3.5 to 4. Ground Azurite is used as a pigment because of it's vibrant color. Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral frequently found pseudomorphed with Azurite.
These Azurite and Malachite specimens have a remarkable amount of color; the warm copper colored matrix is vivid, the Azurite is deep and incredibly saturated, and the Malachite green adds a bit of extra contrast. These are great pieces for display or on any altar!
