Azurite, also known as Chessylite after the type locality at the Chessy-les-Mines near Lyon, France, is a soft, deep blue copper mineral produced by weathering of copper ore deposits. Azurite is unstable in open air, and is destroyed by heat, losing carbon dioxide and water to form black, powdery copper(II) oxide. Azurite's color is azure, a rich deep blue but specimens tend to lighten in color over time due to surface weathering thus turning into what is known as Malachite. Azurite specimens are typically massive to nodular, and are often stalactitic in form.
For centuries, Azurite was used as a blue pigment. Depending on the degree of fineness to which it was ground, it gave a wide range of blues. When mixed with oil it turns slightly green. When mixed with egg yolk it turns green-grey. Older examples of azurite pigment show a more greenish tint due to weathering into malachite. As chemical analysis of paintings from the Middle Ages improves, azurite is being recognized as a major source of the blues used by medieval painters, a common mineral in Europe at the time.
