This is a surreal, powdery-blue sculpture made of solid shattuckite. It consists of what seems to be a spherical aggregate of crystals atop a natural twisting pedestal. It is complete all around save for a few minor indentations in back (growth contacts). Very unusual formation, and while it looks stalactitic, they do not form in the same process. I was told by one person that it might be a pseudomorph after chrysocolla, as well. Unusual, in any case!
