Shattuckite on Dioptase
Kaokoveld Plateau, Namibia
Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia
An absolutely stunning dioptase with shattuckite from the Kaokoveld Plateau in Namibia’s Kunene Region! Dubbed, the “Swiss Army dioptase” due to its resemblance to a Swiss Army knife, this stunning dioptase features a grouping of elongated, doubly-terminated crystals that are peppered with small, sky-blue shattuckite botryoids. The isolated ball of shattuckite contrast nicely with electric green dioptase. The specimen is in good condition overall, some contacts but no major damage.
