Austinite With Barite And Adamite
Cabinet, 12.3 x 7.0 x 3.0 cm
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Really interesting, bubbly, gemmy, rice-grian-shaped austinite crystals here abound on matrix covered also with small adamite crystals. It is the only good adamite association piece I have seen, and the small white barites add additional accent. All 3 species were xrayed on this specimen, to be sure of their ID. These austinite crystals may be rounded, but they are HUGE for the species!
