Shattuckite
stock #18-AX-14-244
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
6.8 x 5.1 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Late Summer 2018

An esthetic and pure mass of the Copper Silicate Hydroxide - Shattuckite. Very good color in a three dimensional specimen. This has a sculptural form holding an open vug much like a vase. The inner surfaces are all a delicate botryoidal blue velvet and the edges show the fibrous structure as well. From the limited finds made in 2013-5 in the Kaokoveld, These were a significant discovery at that time, and remain as some of the best specimens ever for the specie.
Shattuckite with Malachite
stock #ALEC-4-285
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
11.2 x 6.4 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $3250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An intense color, well crystalized large Shattuckite with fine malachite sprays and sparkling luster. One of the nicest of this style, this displays well from any angle, and the color is very much "electric". This find produced the best Shattuckites ever seen and this is an especially choice example. Much more three dimensional than most and with great display impact, in fine condition. On close exam many small doubly terminated Quartz crystals are seen that are a brilliant blue color from included Shattuckite and add a lot of flash. Compared to other fine pieces this is a great value.
