English: Shattuckite, Malachite
Locality: Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: 7.8 x 5.2 x 3.0 cm.
This is a very unusual specimen, visually, with a ball of shattuckite atop that looks like it was split in half and painted green with malachite. However, on close inspection, you can see that there are layers here - the shattuckite came first, and then a thin layer of fibrous malachite was deposited atop half the original sphere of shattuckite (itself an unusual form for the species, and a large example). From the side, you can see how the layers built up, but from head-on, the result is this striking contrast. The matrix underneath is massive quartz, with other veins of shattuckite within. From the Charlie Key Collection, found about 2-3 years ago here in this new expansion of the Kaokoveld mining district. I have never seen another quite like this, in aspect.
