PRODUCT INFORMATION

 

General Description

Immerse yourself in the mesmerizing world of Shattuckite, a stunning copper silicate hydroxide mineral boasting a breathtaking display of vivid blues complemented by a tapestry of associated copper minerals. Nestled within this exceptional material are vibrant hues of chrysocolla, plancheite, and occasionally duftite, cuprite, chalcocite, native copper, azurite, and dioptase. Each piece, meticulously cobbed into smaller specimens, is presented either as striking specimens or as rough material ideal for cutting and crafting.

Shattuckite, scientifically known as Cu5(SiO3)4(OH)2, embodies the essence of its mineral composition, crystallizing within the orthorhombic–bipyramidal crystal system. Typically found in a granular massive form, it also manifests as fibrous acicular crystals, closely resembling the structure and appearance of plancheite. The name Shattuckite pays homage to its discovery site, the Shattuck Mine located in Bisbee, Arizona, USA. Our curated specimens, however, hail from diverse deposits scattered across the landscapes of Namibia.

A breathtaking spectrum of blue hues awaits within these specimens, varying from gentle, lighter tones to deeper, more intense shades. Certain pieces showcase remarkable botryoidal-like formations, while others reveal needle-like or fibrous exposures, adding a delightful diversity to each specimen.

This exquisite Shattuckite embodies a spectrum of captivating colors and intricate formations, beckoning collectors and enthusiasts alike into its vivid world of copper-infused beauty.
