Azurite is an azure-blue copper mineral, occasionally found as prismatic crystals (rarely faceted), but more usually in massive form intergrown with malachite.

Found specifically in copper-mining areas for example Australia, Chile, Russia, Africa, and China. Stones from Chessy, near Lyons in France are known as chessylite.
