Azurite

Also known as blue malachite or chessylite, azurite is a deep-blue, crystalline mineral. It was used from at least early Roman times in powdered form as a paint pigment. Although unsuitable for use in oil paint, it worked well in tempera and watercolour until it was replaced by cheaper blues such as smalt.
