Namibia's Kaokoveld Plateau has become well-known for it's colorful and rare copper silicate minerals, including shattuckite, and malachite. This is a beautiful miniature-sized specimen featuring several lustrous, large, dark blue-green crystals of dioptase (dounbly-terminated to 2.3 cm) on a matrix of vibrant sky-blue shattuckite. The color contrast is striking, and the dioptase crystals are in fine condition. Finding specimens of high-quality dioptase with shattuckite of this color is not easy. Annette Slade photo.
