Exceptional and super esthetic, the baby blue druse of clear Quartz crystals are richly colored by Shattuckite balls they have grown on and are included by. These contrast nicely with the bright green Malachite crystals. Looks even better in person, this from the find five years ago at Kaokoveld, nothing quite like this has come up since. A super display piece for any cabinet this Copper secondary specimen has top color, luster and form.

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
11.2 x 6.4 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
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.
