History and Uses
The origins of the name Malachite may come from one of three Greek words. Firstly, mallow is a type of herb, secondly, malhe meaning grass; either of these could refer to the green colour of the stone or thirdly, malakos meaning soft.
This green crystal was popular in the Ancient World. Egyptians mined it for copper ore and used it for jewellery as early as 4000BC. It is said that the Greeks and Romans powdered the stone to make eye shadow. Also, in the Middle Ages it was believed to protect against the evil eye and sorcery.
Moreover, a large deposit in the Ural Mountains was mined by the Russian Czars to make ornaments and to line the walls of their palaces.
This crystal is a copper carbonate mineral with a hardness of 3.5 to 4. It can often form with Azurite and Chrysocolla. It is found in Zaire, Australia, Chile, South Africa and the USA.

Azurite Crystal Healing Properties
Azurite, also known as K2 Jasper, is believed to assist with opening and clearing the third eye and crown chakras. Similarly, it may also stimulate psychic and intuitive ability, aligning inner vision to its higher guidance.
Also, it is thought to aid in non-judgmental discernment, as it is believed to assist in understanding the true motives in others as well as oneself. Azurite has also been known to assist with learning, memorising, writing and other tasks that focus on orderly presentation or integration of information. It may be a useful stone when in testing or negotiating situations. Azurite may assist to identify and overcome the fears that may be perpetuating untruthful or deceptive behavioural patterns. It is believed to be helpful in issues of the head, including migraines and vertigo.
History and Uses
Azurite has been revered by many ancient cultures including the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese, Mayans and Native Americans who traditionally used this stone to connect with the Spirit realm. Its name is derived from an old Persian word lazhward meaning blue colour. For thousands of years it has been commonly utilised for its vivid blues, ground to powder and added in both paint and dyes. This practice was prominent in medieval European paintings in the 12th century.
