    Shattuckite Box
    Stone Source: DR Congo
    Artist: Konstantin Libman

    This splendid decorative mineral box has been hewn out of rare Shattuckite, an uncommon Copper mineral. This stunning box primarily exhibits an attractive electric, sea-blue coloration, along with other vibrant contrasting hues. This gorgeous box features cut, polished and matched sections of dark teal Shattuckite amid veins of contrasting red-brown Cuprite and green Malachite. The inside is lined with Spanish Cedar, and the lid is finished with two Gold-plated brass hinges. The bottom is made of black Diabase (Dolerite) which contains flecks of glass creating a glistening affect and finished with felt feet. Artist Konstantin Libman has numbered this creation "0593." This outstanding offering needs to be seen in person to grasp the amount of beauty this box exudes. A wooden outer box accompanies this work of art which is in perfect condition.
