Okenwasi Mine, Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 6.6 x 4.1 cm
Ex. Charlie Key
Here is an unusual pocket piece, a stunning specimen of velvety shattuckite of a vivid blue color, in soft rolling carpets of acicular tiny crystals, filling a shallow cavity on this matrix specimen. The curving of the pocket, and the banded rim around it, combined with the accent of sparkling green malachite, make this a very visual and showy specimen. This was found 2-3 years ago, and is from the collection of noted dealer and miner, Charlie Key, also then in the Marshall Sussman collection till now
