Deep blue crystalline azurites sparkle among velvety green malachite on sandstone slabs. Vibrant and bold like the colors of male peacock feathers - yet slightly subdued - these copper carbonates will bring a calming yet lively energy into your home and life.
We're naturally drawn to beautiful shades like these, and have been for ages. Azurite and malachite colored early human cave art, pottery glaze and even ancient Egyptian makeup!
And now, you can hold this work of nature's art in the palm of your hand- staying ever connected to Earth's beauty.
It formed near a large copper deposit in Utah where malachite and azurite crystallized on fractures in sandstone host rock. A reminder that sometimes "breaking open" leads to beautiful healing. Excess sandstone was removed as a slab was cut to show off spectacular detailed patterns and colors in this gorgeous piece.
A persistent miner, Bill Harrison, worked the area for years before finding high quality azurite and malachite. He's diligent about leaving a small mining footpring and continuously improving the land he mines - by re-covering produced areas and re-planting vegetation.
So you can feel good about the good energy this malachite and azurite sandstone slabs bring you. The green malachite brings you a fresh lively energy, while the azurite brings a deep calming.
