Azurite and Malachite are Guardian Builder Crystals. The Guardian talismans do not reveal their inner strength. These stones rarely, if ever, form transparent crystals. Rather, they hide their strength behind an opaque mask, obscuring the power they possess.
In the physical world they are fantastic amulets for protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. When they have the Earth Power of a Builder from their chemical makeup, these crystals are perfect aids in building up wealth, or improving our lot in life both materially and spiritually.
Azurite and Malachites bring us the power of respect and compassion teaching us humanity, discretion, and honor. They help us act more charitably, and focus our efforts on service to others.
The Indigo color of the Azurite is the color of virtue and maturity. It is the color of the true birthstone of those born in midwinter (January 20–February 18). Indigo colored crystals are rare and valuable. They combine the intuition of the violet ray with the trust of the pure blue ray. Indigo colored Azurite is an excellent natural birthstones for those born in midwinter. Try one and see.
Indigo colored Azurite is used to treat imbalances in the Crown Chakra. When the crown chakra is out of balance or its energy is blocked, you will feel clumsy, uncoordinated, and at sorts with life. You will stumble in both movement and thought. You will be uninspired and out of step. The world will seem to be spinning, and you will be unsure of who you are or why you even exist. You will be rigid in your thinking, and be spiritually adrift. Your consciousness will be limited, and possibilities will not appear to you. You will have difficulty understanding relationships, ideas, and dreams.

Use Azurite in meditations to get in touch with the Earth mother. It seems holding one in each hand and sitting quietly on the ground for a few quiet minutes seems to make many people much more aware of the earth as a living organism upon whom we are totally dependent.
Other practitioners report that Azurite helps with communication with higher levels of the spirit world and is a stone that helps you "let go" of things that you need to rid from your life. It is reported to be of benefit to gaining control over your emotions.
