Shattuckite
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.
