26149: Shattuckite on Quartz
Kandesei, Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia
Miniature - 5.6 x 4.8 x 3.3 cm (2.2 x 1.9 x 1.3 inches)
Weight - 86 grams (0.20 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

A cleft in massive quartz matrix hosts a beautifully blue carpet of fuzzy alien space mold shattuckite. A few tiny, second generation colorless quartz crystals are emplaced atop the shattuckite. Very blue! Displays quite nicely without needing a stand. Overall quite nice for the species and locality in this price range.
