Ex. Marshall Sussman
An excellent pseudomorph from the Kaokoveld area of Namibia. Shattuckite has replaced prismatic crystals of azurite with one prominent crystal nearly 3cm in length. The bottom of the piece divulges a little more history about the replacement process and paragenesis. A small cavity at the base reveals botryoids of shattuckite along with a partial crystal of primary malachite. Sussman collection label.
