Azurite Malachite also known as Blue Bird is a combination of the two distinct and well-known gemstones: the deep and rich blues of Azurite and the green shades of Malachite. It is is a relatively rare material since it forms where the local geochemical environment alternates between the conditions required to form azurite and those required to form malachite. The stone is mostly mined in the southwestern United States, France, or Namibia.
