Azurite Druzy Shard Necklace
This necklace features a fine specimen of azurite, which I cut from a larger specimen. It has a wonderful, druzy texture that glistens with a dark, royal blue color that is completely natural. It's suspended by sterling silver wire with a twisted, faceted texture. A small charm of cubic zirconia accents the top of the stone. The pendant measures 15mm in width and has a length of 50mm (about 2"), which includes the silver bail. It slides around a sterling silver, diamond cut, bar satellite chain. The length of the necklace is 18". Lapis beads accent the ends of the chain near its clasp.
History and Metaphysical Properties:
Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral with a hardness of 3.5-4. Its crystal system is monoclinic. It is mined mostly in China and Morocco. Metaphysically, Azurite stimulates the 3rd eye chakra. It’s a stone of inner vision and is used to enhance dreams and psychic powers. It stimulates intellect and intuition. It protects from psychic attacks or attachments by strengthening the astral and etheric bodies. It’s been used to repair the aura, which helps to overcome fatigue. It also helps with boredom by allowing one to open their inner eye to see connections and possibilities.
