    Azurite is a blue copper mineral with the chemical formula Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2. It forms monoclinic crystals. Azurite weathers into malachite. Azurite is used as a pigment, in jewelry, and as a decorative stone. This stone is "Velvet Beauty" from Bisbee, Arizona.

    Velvet Beauty This is the actual name of this magnificent specimen. It is an important piece, one gotten from a private collection and displayed by a vendor at the Tucson Rock and Gem Show. It was found in 1890 at Bisbee, Arizona, long a world-known site for azurite and malachite as well as copper. The photo was taken through glass, and the vendor held up a flashlight for me to take this picture. Velvet Beauty can be yours for a mere $25,000. It is the finest specimen I have ever seen of one of my favorite minerals. I believe the chunk weighs about 3 pounds and is about 9" in diameter. As often, I recommend seeing the large or original size view.
