Azurite is named after the Persian word "lazhward", for its characteristic blue color. A secondary copper mineral frequently found in the oxidized zones of Cu-bearing ore deposits, usually in association with malachite. Azurite is less stable in open air than malachite, and is often pseudomorphically replaced by it. Or they can form together as azurmalachite.
