is a soft stone copper carbonate mineral, named for its deep
“azure blue” color. To the inhabitants of Atlantis and the early
Egyptians, Azurite was a most potent psychic stone and shrouded in
mystery; its secrets known only to the highest priests and
priestesses. It was called the Stone of Heaven by the ancient
Chinese who believed it to open celestial gateways, and was revered
by Greeks and Romans for its visionary insights and healing powers.
For the Mayans, Azurite inspired the mystical self and facilitated
the transfer of wisdom and knowledge via thought, while Native
Americans used this sacred stone to contact their spiritual Indian
guide, feel the presence and understand the message.
For modern practitioners,
Azurite’s metaphysical properties still mirror its legacy powers,
clearing away tension and confusion, and opening the mind to new
perspectives. This crystal stimulates the intellect, awakening the development of psychic
and intuitive abilities, and brings inner vision into alignment with
spiritual guidance. It may be used for the enhancement of dreams,
entering a meditative or channeling state, and enables out of body
journeys to take place safely.

Giraffe bones I use are from the leg bones of the Giraffe. These
bones come from South Africa and were legally obtained from
harvested animals. Giraffe bones have a nice patina
and provide a nice contrast to the Azurite-Malachite.
