Introducing the Mesmerizing Blue Shattuckite Specimen from South Africa!

Product Details:

Shattuckite: A Rare and Captivating Copper Silicate Hydroxide Mineral

  • Appearance: Shattuckite is an uncommon copper mineral, highly regarded for its vivid blue colour. Named after the Shattuck Mine in Bisbee, Arizona, where it was first discovered, Shattuckite occasionally forms within Quartz crystals, creating a stunning combination.
  • Composition: Scientifically known as Cu5(SiO3)4(OH)2, Shattuckite crystallizes within the orthorhombic–bipyramidal crystal system. It typically occurs in a granular massive form, resembling fibrous acicular crystals similar to plancheite.
  • Diverse Origins: Our curated Shattuckite specimens come from Namibia, where diverse deposits yield a breath-taking spectrum of blue hues. From gentle, lighter tones to deeper, more intense shades, each piece tells a unique story.
  • Associated Copper Minerals: Nestled within this exceptional material are vibrant hues of chrysocolla, plancheite, and occasionally duftite, cuprite, chalcocite, native copper, azurite, and dioptase.
  • Crafting Potential: Each piece has been meticulously cobbed into smaller specimens, making them ideal for collectors, enthusiasts, and lapidary artists. Whether you display them as striking specimens or use them for cutting and crafting, their beauty is undeniable.
