Azurite is a copper mineral that is formed by the penetration of groundwater containing oxygen into rock strata rich in copper. This mineral has a hardness of 3.5/4. It is typically found as tabular to prismatic crystals of a deep blue color with vitreous faces. Azurite suns are a unique formation of this mineral found only in the Malbunka Copper Mine of Australia. 

 

The color of this specimen is rich and deep. Every detail on the surface reminds me of waves you would see in the ocean. The color invokes a sense of depth, wisdom, and truth. It is a very delicate specimen that can start chipping very easily. Handling it with extra care is highly recommended.
