Azurite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral with the formula Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2, with the copper(II) cations linked to two different anions, carbonate and hyrdroxide. Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, with the formula Cu2CO3(OH)2.
The small difference in their chemical formulae being the state of oxidation of copper at the time the mineral formed, creating either deep blue Azurite, or deep green Malachite.
Thus these 2 minerals are often found growing together in nature, and as always, when mother nature combines minerals in a symbiotic cluster, the power of the crystals are multiplied by each other rather than added together.
Azurite-Malachite is an exceptional conductor of energy, bringing a grounded, more integrated process in healing physical dis-ease. The blue ray penetrates and moves energy, calming stress levels within the system while the green ray facilitates a deep healing force. It may also be used to activate the Third Eye in cleansing the subconscious of emotionally charged thoughts or negative feelings, and restoring a higher and clearer mental state.
It assists in dissolving egocentric traits, dispelling conceit, arrogance and vanity, and instills a willingness toward flexibility and individuality based on a universal connection to “All.” Azurite-Malachite’s combination of energies is highly conducive to meditation by allowing one to go deep within the self, without fear, in order to be sustained, absolved, and reborn into the light, completely aware of the genesis at all times
