Azurite and malachite are two different stones. When the two stones combine, they result in a lovely mineral that has been given various names. One such name for this beautiful crystal is “The Businessman's Stone.” Unusual properties made it popular because it is believed to attract wealth and prosperity. This isn't surprising considering how invitingly gorgeous these crystals are when polished and strung together. Their natural coloration of blues and greens run deep with almost lapis-like blues of azurite and the diverse green shades of banded malachite.
It is also known as the “stone of transformation." This powerful yet gentle mineral can help you find your true self and have better vision in all areas life. Not only does this crystal inspire creativity but when used regularly its calming effects will sooth even the most restless soul. Those who believe in the healing properties call it the "stone of heaven." The name comes from its ability to make you feel like everything is right with your world - attuned not only physically but emotionally too.
Because these are genuine stones from Mother Earth, bead colors may vary slightly.
