Lazulite

Lazulite is an aesthetic blue mineral that forms in distinct crystals. Its name is very similar and often confused with Lazurite, which is an entirely different mineral species. However, the names of both these minerals are derived from the term "Lazaward", which means heaven in Arabic, alluding to their blue color.

Lazurite forms a series with the rare mineral Scorzalite, which is the iron-rich equivalent of Lazurite.
