Azul Calcite

Azul Calcite stone is a type of calcite that derives its blue hues from the presence of trace minerals, typically copper. Calcite itself forms primarily through the precipitation of calcium carbonate from water, often in limestone caves, hot springs, or hydrothermal vents. Over time, as the calcite crystals grow, various impurities, such as copper ions, can become trapped within the crystal lattice structure. These impurities interact with light in a way that produces the characteristic blue coloration seen in Azul Calcite. The exact geological processes and conditions that lead to the formation of Azul Calcite can vary, but it often occurs in association with other minerals in sedimentary or hydrothermal environments.
