Azurite gets its name from the Persian word 'lazhward', which refers to its distinctive, vivid blue color. The blue color, known as "azure," is like the deep blue evening skies often seen above deserts and winter landscapes. It was formerly used for azure pigment.
Azurite is also known as chessylite after the type locality at Chessy-les-Mines near Lyon, France.
The copper mine at Milpillas, Mexico earned its status as a modern classic by producing jewels of azurite.
