Azurite is definitely not a typical or bountiful mineral, however it is wonderful and its blue tone stands out. It has been utilized by individuals in many areas of the planet for millennia. Old individuals involved it as a metal of copper, as a color, as a gemstone, and as an elaborate stone. It is as yet utilized for these reasons today.
Azurite is an auxiliary mineral that generally frames when carbon-dioxide-loaded waters plummet into the Earth and respond with subsurface copper metals. The carbonic corrosive of these waters disintegrates limited quantities of copper from the mineral. The disintegrated copper is shipped with the water until it comes to a new geochemical climate. This new climate could be where water science or temperature changes, or where vanishing happens. Assuming that conditions are correct, the mineral azurite could frame. In the event that these circumstances continue for quite a while, a critical gathering of azurite could create. This has happened in many regions of the planet.
Azurite precipitation happens in pore spaces, breaks, and depressions of the subsurface stone. The it is generally enormous or nodular to result azurite. In uncommon circumstances, azurite is found as stalactitic and botryoidal developments. All around shaped monoclinic gems are inconsistently found. These can happen assuming azurite encourages unhindered in a break or cavity and isn't disturbed by later crystallization or rock developments.
Malachite is another copper carbonate mineral that structures under conditions like azurite. These minerals are in many cases found in a similar store and are frequently intergrown with each other. This creates a material known as azurmalachite, which, when of top caliber, can be utilized as a lovely lapidary material.

Magnificent examples can sell for hundreds, thousands, or a huge number of dollars relying on their quality and size.
The shakiness of azurite is an issue for authorities. Whenever presented to intensity or high stickiness, example surfaces will start to climate to malachite.
