Azurite has a monoclinic crystal system. The ancient Egyptians utilized Azurite as a dye for makeup, clothing and painting. Ancient Mesopotamian texts refer to directions on making a specialized mortar and pestle specifically designed for grinding Azurite for ceremonial uses. Azurite was documented by Pliny the Elder in his "Natural History" under both the Greek name Kuanos and the Latin name Caeruleum. We hope that you love owning a gorgeous piece of this ancient mineral.
