This brilliantly blue stone commonly grows with malachite , Chrysocolla and other copper carbonate crystals.

Azurite is a fairly soft sone, it lands a 3.5-4 on the MOHS (measure of hardness scale) therefore is not a stone suitable for moon water or to be cleansed by water. Because of its soft quality and its intuitive properties the Egyptian people used to grind it up and use the pigments to draw the eye of Horus on there for heads for insight and protection.
Azurite helps to open the third eye to a stronger more connected state to the astral and esoteric levels. While holding this strong connection it helps the bearer of the stone less vulnerable to psychic attack or attachments. This blue beauty is one of the most important stones to activate the third eye and bloom into your intuitive powers. Edgar Cayce ( an American clairvoyant who some consider the father of the new age movement) thought Azurite was the most powerful and important stone to connect and strengthen our third eye chakra.
Crown, Third eye and Throat Chakras are associated with this stone. As explained it helps to strengthen our connection to spirt and the higher self by giving us a strong intuitive ability.

It is especially helpful with finding the truth in a working relationship or love relationship.
