Khorixasite is a newly discovered mineral with the formula (Bi0.67◻0.33)Cu(VO4)(OH). It was officially approved as a mineral in 2016 and comes from the Mesopotamia Copper Valley. Khorixasite is named after Khorixas, Namibia; a district within the Kunene region. It is a bright yellow micromineral that is frequently found with Shattuckite.
Shattuckite is a copper silicate hydroxide mineral with formula Cu5(SiO3)4(OH)2. It is closely related to, and often found alongside, plancheite, chrysocolla and malachite.
Shattuckite is believed to be a stone of truth. It can connect you to inner realms and help with understanding and communicating information from spirit guides. It is a protective stone and can be used to remove energetic blockages from the past.
We have been collecting mineral specimens in Southern Africa since 2002. We focus on bringing a wide variety of unusual, beautiful and energetic minerals!
