A combination of granite and azurite with malachite, this stone offers healing and wellness. The azurite inclusions in K2 leads to new found knowledge and enlightened intuition resulting in major spiritual growth and soul retrieval, and offers grounding and support.
A rare combination of azurite in granite, K2 is named after the second-highest mountain in the world, found in the Karakoram Range near the border between Pakistan and China. K2 is the second-highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest.
Completely natural, the white granite is very fine-grained and composed of quartz, sodium plagioclase, muscovite, and biotite. Some specimens show strong alignment of the biotite grains and could be called "granite gneiss."
The bright blue azurite is present within tiny fractures, and as a "dye" penetrating the feldspar grains. The azurite is a secondary material that clearly formed after all of the other minerals in the granite had solidified. If you look closely, you might also find small areas that are stained green with malachite.
