Effects of Azurite
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. Azurite is beneficial in exploring past or alternate lives, and its ability to clear the Throat Chakra allows for precise verbalization recalled from these experiences. [Hall, 77][Simmons, 63][Ahsian, 64][Melody, 139]
The energy of Azurite is highly effective for use as a pendulum and in radionic analysis. It assists psychics, mediums, channels, or other Light workers in improving the accuracy of their interpretations and helping to maintain objectivity. [Melody, 141][Ahsian, 64]
Azurite stimulates all the mind centers, nourishing a keen interest in life, one’s function in society, and discovering new commonalities and links within our world. It encourages the study of new and challenging subjects, not only for school or college students, but for adults trying to fit study in with other commitments, and for “students of life” over-fifty or in retirement. Azurite enhances focus and concentration, memorization and retention of information.[Simmons, 63][Eason, 217]
Azurite is a good crystal for older people who live alone or in sheltered accommodations to maintain their independence, mental alertness and physical health. [Eason, 217]
Azurite is often found in nature mixed with Malachite, another copper carbonate mineral, this one with a bright green color. Together, in polished form, they resemble Mother Earth and carry not only their individual properties, but a powerful blend of healing energies.
Azurite-Malachite is an exceptional conductor of energy, bringing a grounded, more integrated process in healing physical dis-ease. The blue ray penetrates and moves energy, calming stress levels within the system while the green ray facilitates a deep healing force. It may also be used to activate the Third Eye in cleansing the subconscious of emotionally charged thoughts or negative feelings, and restoring a higher and clearer mental state. It assists in dissolving egocentric traits, dispelling conceit, arrogance and vanity, and instills a willingness toward flexibility and individuality based on a universal connection to “All.”
Azurite-Malachite’s combination of energies is highly conducive to meditation by allowing one to go deep within the self, without fear, in order to be sustained, absolved, and reborn into the light, completely aware of the genesis at all times. [Raphaell, 146-147][Hall, 78][Melody, 141-142]
Azurite aids circulation and oxygenating the blood, and works at a cellular level to restore any blockage or damage to the brain. This is a good stone for Alzheimer’s, dementia and other degenerative brain-related disorders, as well as aging. [Melody, 141][Hall, 78][Eason, 217] Azurite may also soothe migraines, lessen tinnitus, and balance vertigo. [Ahsian, 64] It is also reported to improve reflex actions. [Gienger, 18]
Azurite is useful in treatments for spinal alignment and disorders of the vertebrae, rib-cage and small bones, particularly those which are malformed. It may also be beneficial in treating arthritis and joint problems, for detoxification, and issues of the kidneys, gallbladder, spleen and liver. It is thought to be good for healthy skin and teeth, and to encourage the development of an embryo in the womb. [Melody, 141][Hall, 78][Eason, 217]
Azurite lends the courage to overcome negative patterns of behavior stemming from insecurity and fear. It helps those who are deceptive or lie habitually to be more clear and truthful to themselves and to others. It calms those who talk too much out of nervousness, and encourages those who hold back from self-expression to verbalize their thoughts and feelings. [Ahsian, 64][Hall, 78]
Azurite is excellent for overcoming an inferiority complex, living only to please others, and in overcoming domestic bullying by one’s children, partner, parents, or friends who always know best. Azurite lessens tensions between different generations when sharing a home, especially when there are three or more generations, or relations involved in step-parenting. [Eason, 217]
Chakra Healing and Balancing :
Azurite’s deep blue energy stimulates the Third Eye Chakra in awakening the psychic and intuitive self, and in opening the mind to spiritual guidance. It provides insight into all areas of our lives. It aligns the chakras and attunes the physical body to the ethereal, dissolving blockages throughout the system. The unimpaired flow of energy allows for increased communication and verbalization through the Throat Chakra. [Melody, 139-140][Hall, 77]
Azurite inspires the search for truth in one’s personal reality by challenging the examination and letting go of old programmed belief systems, and expanding one’s awareness to a deeper understanding of life. Azurite’s vibrant blue energy has the ability to move subconscious thought into the conscious mind to be reviewed and tested for truth, a search that reveals one’s true motives in spiritual connection and whether they are for the highest good of all beings and not for personal gain or ego fulfillment. Azurite also allows one to sense the truth in what others would have us believe and protects one from being misled. [Raphaell, 137-138][Hall, 77-78][Ahsian, 64]
Azurite is a stone for connecting with sacred powers through religious music, such as Gregorian or Buddhist chants, choral music and hymns; also for healing with sound, especially using the drums, didgeridoo, pipes or the voice. [Eason, 217]
Azurite is highly conducive for meditation and relaxation, allowing one to easily enter the void of the “no-mind” state. It lets one travel deep within the inner being, and to maintain the depth for spiritual guidance or to explore past or alternate lives in order to recover information and knowledge from those lifetimes. [Melody, 141][Hall, 77][Ahsian, 64]
Azurite honors Athena, the Greek Goddess of War and Wisdom. She is always depicted in armor and is known as a skilled fighter and strategist, and for her superb logic and intellect.

Malachite and Azurite bring together the green of the earth and the blue of the sky, as Isis is the daughter of Earth and Sky.
Azurite will soothe the sore throats of those born in the sign of Sagittarius, and will stimulate their natural interest in philosophy. Tauris’ sore throats will also be healed by this stone, and will give those born under this sign additional self-control and self-confidence. [Megemont, 39]
