Is this shattuckite?

+1 vote

I think this may be shattuckite with calcite and quartz but I am really not sure at all. The stone may originate from South Africa. It belonged to my uncle who collected minerals around South Africa.

Its very possible that its Shattuckite. It has the right color and form.

Yes.  I have seen this at mineral shows and it looks exactly like the ones I saw that were labeled Shattuckite.  Shattuckite has many shades of blue, as does azurite, but the ones I saw at the show had this look.
