Azurite is usually found with malachite, so it's common to refer to the combined material as azurite-malachite. Most of the azurite-malachite you see on the market has been assembled, though, and I'm pretty sure this set of beads is no exception.
I do love this material. Azurite-malachite is a happy marriage of rich blues and green, which are my two favorite colors. I think they go very well with the gold-filled wire I used to link the 4x13mm beads. I finished with a small vermeil hook clasp from India.
I made chandelier earrings to match. The vermeil chandelier dangles are from Bali, and I hung the azurite-malachite beads from them with gold-filled headpins & 2mm gold-filled beads. (The French hooks are also gold-filled.) The bead & vermeil dangles are 1.5 inches long, and the earrings' total weight is 0.1 oz.
