She was twisting the azurite jewels on her bosom, and pressing the blunt points into her flesh.
He further draws attention to the occurrence of irregular knobs two to three lines in height which consist, in part, of azurite.
azurite, a blue mineral, a carbonate of copper, often occurring in crystals.
Copper carbonates are of wide occurrence in the mineral kingdom, and constitute the valuable ores malachite and azurite.
The Chessy and Banat azurite is most profitably employed to make sulphate of copper.
The carbonates give us malachite and azurite, both carbonates of copper with combined water, the malachite having more water.
Two more of the softer materials, malachite and azurite, remain to be described.
azurite is found in the Arizona mines and in Chessy, in France (hence the name chessylite, sometimes used instead of azurite).
Crystals of azurite belong to the monoclinic system; they have a vitreous lustre and are translucent.
In almost every way, except difference in color and slight difference in composition, it is very much like azurite (see above).
A dark-blue monoclinic mineral occurring as a mass of crystals (an aggregate) or in the form of blades with wedge-shaped tips. It is often found together with the mineral malachite in copper deposits. Azurite is used as a source of copper, as a gemstone, and as a dye for paints and fabrics. Chemical formula: Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2.
