Rock Family: Shattuckite-Dioptase is not a mineral, but rather a rock. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of Shattuckite-Dioptase, there are two main minerals, blue Shattuckite and green Dioptase, both of which belong to the Silicate mineral family. The stone may also include small traces of other minerals.

Formation: Shuttuckite and Dioptase are both rare minerals which form in desert areas as a secondary mineral in copper sulfide mineral deposits. In the case of a combined stone, the Dioptase forms first and then part of it pseudomorphs into Shattuckite. 

Mining: Typically mined from primary deposits that still have their original relationship with the host rock. It is generally a small-scale affair. 

Enhancements: All Shattuckite-Dioptases on the market are fully natural and have been enhanced only by cutting, tumbling, and polishing.

History of Shattuckite-Dioptase

Shattuckite-Dioptase is a combination of two copper minerals and has only found in Namibia.  It was recently introduced to the market and is not included in any known lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers.

Shattuckite was first discovered in 1915, in the Shattuck Mine near Bisbee, Arizona, from which it gets its name. By contrast, Dioptase has a history dating back thousands of years.

Healing Properties of Shattuckite-Dioptase

Spiritual: Shattuckite-Dioptase’s energy embodies the concept of “Satya” (Sanskrit for Truth). As a spiritual practice, Satya asks us to be truthful in our actions, words, and even thoughts. It teaches that when we live honestly, in our every aspect, we heal the world and are ourselves blessed. Shattuckite-Dioptase has a gentle but strong energy, encouraging us to live with common sense and moral decency. It sparks within us a desire to continually learn more and become more spiritually evolved and awakened. Shattuckite-Dioptase can also be used as a protector stone during channeling and communication with spiritual and extra-terrestrial worlds. Shattuckite-Dioptase is attuned to the Heart, Throat, and Third Eye Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Sagittarius, Scorpio, and Aquarius. It is connected to the elements of Water and Wind and vibrates to the Numbers 2 and 8.

Emotional: Shattuckite-Dioptase helps us to be especially honest in our relationships and to speak wisely and listen compassionately. It helps us to understand our own feelings and to better empathize with others. Shattuckite-Dioptase invites us to take more responsibility for our own lives and to acknowledge our own roles in creating the situations we find ourselves in. However, Shattuckite-Dioptase simultaneously helps us resist the urge to take all the blame and absolve everyone else. This stone helps us to see the world clearly, despite a fog of emotions. It reminds us that, above all, we must be honest with ourselves, acknowledging our own needs, wants, dreams, and desires, and to take action to create joyful abundance.

Mentally: Shattuckite-Dioptase is a stone of heart-wisdom, and helps us to see the world both pragmatically and compassionately. It helps us to let go of the past and pay more attention to our present and to the future we want to create. Shattuckite-Dioptase also stimulates both our intuitive and mental abilities, making it a useful stone for anyone studying metaphysical practices such as tarot, runes, astrology, Chakras, and, of course, crystal healing! It is a particularly good stone for anyone who teaches metaphysical subjects as it helps us to put into words concepts that are often first experienced in the intuitive gut and deep within the heart.

Physical: Shattuckite-Dioptase is most often used by metaphysical healers to treat physical diseases associated with the spleen and the throat, particularly disorders that may have their root in emotional pain and distress. It is said to help clear blockages on the cellular level and to encourage blood coagulation. Is is believed to be particularly useful for treating tonsillitis.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

These Shattuckite-Dioptases were mined in Namibia and tumbled in South Africa.

I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.

It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Shattuckite-Dioptase for you.

Your Stone

This price is for one stone.

You can buy a single tumbled Shattuckite-Dioptase or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Shattuckite-Dioptase measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.

The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips, and have a visually pleasing blend of vivid green and blue. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.

With their beautiful colors and clean energies, these tumbled Shattuckite-Dioptases are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
