Azurite is a captivating deep blue mineral renowned for its stunning azure hue, which ranges from a rich, vibrant blue to a more subdued, almost greenish tint. Composed of copper carbonate, azurite often forms as a secondary mineral in the oxidized zones of copper ore deposits.

Its name is derived from the Persian word "lazhward," meaning blue, reflecting the gem's distinctive coloration. Azurite has been utilized for centuries as a pigment in paintings, revered for its intense blue pigment. Beyond its artistic applications, azurite is also cherished by collectors and mineral enthusiasts for its mesmerizing crystal formations.
