Shattuckite is said to help one with communication and to look at oneís self with words, action or thoughts are causing discord, instead of blaming others for oneís difficulties. It is considered to be a soothing and calming stone for those who are excessively judgmental, reactive, aggressive or irresponsible.

Shattuckite is a cooper silicate hydroxide mineral, itís crystal system is orthorhombic.  It is found in cooper mines, often in association with Ajoite, Turquoise, Chrysocolla, as well as Malachite and other cooper silicates.

Its colour range from light blue to deep blue, and sometimes green. One of itís growing habits is fibres. It can also occur in a granular habit. Shattuck mine in Bisbee , Arizona. Other localities are in Argentina, Austria, Congo, Germany, Greece, Namibia, Norway, South Africa, and Great Britain, as well as a number of places in the southwestern USA.

Sometime found with Chrysocolla.  Chrysocolla is an attractive blue-green colour and is minor ore of copper. The name comes from the Greek chrysos, "gold", and kolla, "blue", in allusion to the name of the mineral used to solder gold, and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BC


Here at London Fossils Crystals I sell a wide range of Tumble Stones  

Tumble stones are so called because a number of stones of similar sizes are placed in a barrel which is rotated (tumbled) at a speed and after a time between 3 - 5 weeks the stones are polished from rough to smooth. 

(The Tumble stones we sell, have not been tumbled by ourselves)
