Azurite and malachite are both stunning copper minerals with distinct visual characteristics.

Azurite appears as deep blue, often with lighter blue streaks, and has a velvety or glassy lustre. Its crystal formations are typically small and prismatic, and it often occurs as fine-grained masses or earthy aggregates. The vivid blue colour of azurite is truly captivating.

Malachite, on the other hand, displays a vibrant green hue, ranging from bright green to dark green, with characteristic bands or concentric rings of varying shades. Its surface can be polished to a brilliant, glassy shine, revealing its striking patterns. Malachite often forms in fibrous or botryoidal masses, giving it a unique and captivating appearance.

Both minerals are highly prized for their beautiful colours and are commonly used as ornamental stones and in jewellery due to their attractive and eye-catching visual appeal.
