No, this is not a mediocre specimen of adamite, but a specimen of AUSTINITE (Calcium Zinc Arsenate Hydroxide) on limonite matrix - a rarity in fine crystals such as these, from Mina Ojuela. These translucent green clusters measure to one centimeter and are superb for the species. One of them is partial, allowing you to see the radial acicular structure.
