K2 is the name of a relatively new find of azurite in granite, only discovered in the past decade. It is known for its brilliant blue disks in speckled white granite. There is a hot debate on the actual composition of the stone; after extensive research I have discovered it is azurite in granite, quite a rare occurrence. It is not Afghanite or Lazulite as some sites will suggest. Sometimes small fleck of malachite can be found, mica is a common occurrence in the granite too. This stone is found in a very remote area at the base of K2, the second tallest mountain in the world near the border of Pakistan and China, and gives this stone its name.
This stone is known for increasing insight and intuition. It has a soft grounding energy due to the granite, but the brilliant blues bring energy into the third eye. Traces of malachite help to open the heart, while mica provides energy of introspection, the ability to see within. It helps you to make decisions in your best interest, taking fear of the unknown out of the equation.
Azurite is a copper based mineral often found with malachite as it is closely related. Azurite is known for its intense blue colors. Its energy is very soothing and calming for the emotions. You can use the smaller nodules on your closed eyes to sooth and sharpen them. It is very good for artists, authors and other such careers as it bolsters inspiration and intuition. It can be used to balance the electrochemical system of the body and provide a flow of energy from the 3rd eye to the heart chakras.
