PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Exceptionally rare and stunning polished Shattuckite free forms! Mined exclusively by us in Namibia, this material undergoes meticulous local polishing in South Africa by Gary. Shattuckite is a captivating copper silicate hydroxide mineral, known for its crystalline structure in the orthorhombic – bipyramidal crystal system. Typically found in granular massive forms and fibrous acicular crystals, it closely resembles Plancheite in appearance. Named after its discovery location, the Shattuck Mine in Bisbee, Arizona, USA, our specimens are sourced from various deposits across Namibia. They offer a range of colour intensities, from light to darker blue, with some pieces showcasing botryoidal, needle-like, or fibrous exposures. Our new deposit even yields cauliflower-like specimens, often associated with Duftite. Sometimes, we acquire matrix material containing minerals like Chrysocolla, Malachite, and Azurite. Additionally, we offer professionally polished material from this region, primarily in the form of points or free forms, as we continuously work to bring more polished material to the market. Explore the allure of Shattuckite and enhance your collection with these remarkable specimens. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
