Azurite stone is a copper mineral that commonly appears as a rough stone than a crystal. Its name is derived from its color, azure-blue. In some cases, this stone could also have a pale blue shade. In the jewelry-making industry, Azurite stones are an epitome of exquisite beauty because of its attractive (blue) pigmentation; and as naturally rough stones, these are skillfully shaped and cut into dainty beads and cabochons to create equally beautiful pieces of jewelries. Cutting and shaping these stones in order to be used in making jewelry pieces are done with professional skills as they are relatively delicate and soft, with a hardness level ranging from 3.5 to 4 in the Mohs scale.
