Every so often you come across something especially beautiful and rare. I can't stop looking at this huge cabochon and I love the feeling in my hand. It feels nice to hold when your not doing much of anything.
This stone is top grade AAA. The stone is highly polished without any cracks or pits.
Shattuckite is named after the small area in Arizona where it was first discovered. Famous mines like Kingman, Morenci and the most famous historically I believe is Bisbee. If you ever get the chance to go to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum inn Washington DC the mineral part is a must see. I went back to see it twice and they have a whole section on Bisbee copper mine and it's absolutely amazing to see what it was like when they found that mine. It was like in a cave full of stalagmites and stalactites all made from chrysocolla malachite and azurite. It was probably the most amazing thing I have ever seen.
I know I have rocks in my head. Have since I was a little boy. Took Geology in University. Seen a lot of different rock in my day. So I'm a little fussy when it comes to picking out beauties.
My aim in business is to bring the best for the lowest price.
