Stone of Heaven

Azurite is a beautiful deep blue stone, known as the ‘stone of heaven’, stimulating the pursuit of one’s heavenly self, providing for guidance through the third eye, allowing for precise verbalization  of one’s psychic experiences.

In Native American cultures, Azurite has been used as a very sacred stone, facilitating contact with ones spiritual Indian guide; allowing one to both feel the presence and understand the meaning of the visit and the message.

It is said that the name Azurite comes from the Persian word lazhaward meaning ‘blue’.

The ancient Greeks and Romans used to ground the stone and use not only for medicinal purposes but also for dye and paint coloring
