This particular ring design features a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (1.9mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring is then sanded smooth, set with your chosen piece of Azurite, then polished to a high shine. Each piece is made entirely by hand using cruelty-free materials and environmentally friendly methods.

💎 AZURITE LORE:
The gemstone Azurite had a rich history in ancient times. The ancient Chinese called it the 'Stone of Heaven,' believing it to open celestial gateways. To the inhabitants of Atlantis and the early Egyptians, Azurite was considered to be an extremely potent psychic stone. It was shrouded in mystery and its secrets were known only to the highest priests and priestesses. It was also revered by Greeks and Romans for its healing powers.
One of the main properties of Azurite is that it is thought to temper the mind, releasing confusion, stress and worry. It helps with indecision and doubt, restoring control and balance over emotions. It is generally considered to be a stone that releases its energy through constant touch, and so rubbing a piece of Azurite is thought to help aid its uses.
As well having these properties, Azurite is also help to assist with study, learning and general multi-tasking in life. It does this by enhancing focus, concentration and improving memory.

Malachite was also popular with the Ancient Greeks and Romans for jewellery, ornaments and in powdered form, for eye shadow. Malachite was believed to protect against the 'Evil Eye' and to cure against various ailments. Russian Czars used Malachite for ornaments and panelling for their castles, and intricate inlay work.
One of the greatest properties of Malachite is protection, from both the physical and spiritual realm. Other properties include helping one to make change, creativity, enhancing the development of intuition, and to aid emotional healing. Keep Malachite with you to protect you whilst traveling or when undertaking tasks that may take a physical or psychological toll on your body.
