PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Shattuckite is a copper silicate hydroxide mineral with formula Cu5(SiO3)4(OH)2. It crystallizes in the orthorhombic – bipyramidal crystal system and usually occurs in a granular massive form and also as fibrous acicular crystals. It is closely allied to Plancheite in structure and appearance. It is named after its discovery locality, the Shattuck Mine, Bisbee, Arizona, USA. Our specimens are sourced from various deposits across Namibia. The colour intensity ranges from light to darker blue, with some pieces having botryoidal, needle-like or fibrous exposures. Our new deposit yields cauliflower-like specimens associated to Duftite. Whilst we also get matrix material which is in a Quartz-, sometimes there are associated minerals such as Chrysocolla, Malachite and Azurite. We sometimes obtain professionally polished material from this region, generally in the form of facetted points. Price is grade dependent. Item/s are as shown.
