Gemstone of the Month – Shattuckite

I was so happy when I first discovered shattuckite!  It is the most amazing gemstone, which comes in all manner of combinations of blue.

Shattuckite is a mix of azurite, chrysocolla, malachite, and sometimes copper (cuperite) in quartz. It was first discovered in 1915 in the copper mines of Bisbee, Arizona, specifically the Shattuck Mine (hence the name).

It is a psuedomorph, meaning that it forms as the result of an atom by atom change to a crystal structure, in this case of Malachite.

Shattuckite is reputed to assist with reconciliation and renewal. Shattuckite is also used to channel information. It is said to calm the mind and create harmony.

Shattuckite is believed to be helpful in healing diabetes, assisting with calcium absorption problems, thyroid issues, mites and other infestations, and tonsillitis.
