Azurite is a soft, deep blue copper mineral produced by weathering of copper ore deposits, it is also known as Chessylite after resort at Chessy-les-Mines, near Lyon, France. Azurite has been known since ancient times, and was mentioned in Pliny the Elder Natural History during the Greek name kuanos (cyan) and the Latin name caeruleum (blue). Azurite is exceptionally deep and clear, and have tended to be associated with deep blue colour and winter sky. The modern English name of the mineral reflects this compound, as both Azurite and azure derived via Arabic from the Persian lazhward, an area known for another deep blue stone, lapis lazuli.
