- Ex. Jeffrey Starr
Superb specimen of light mint-green Cuprian Adamite crystals, up to about 1 cm in size. Several dozen of these lustrous, gemmy-to-translucent crystals line the limonite vug. The crystals are unusually GLASSY: They are brilliant, reflective, and super-sharp. It is highly fluorescent as well. A very fine, high quality piece from the famous Ojuela Mine, from finds of the mid-2000's. Gorgeous color is distinct from older material, and this style is seldome seen except for a few special pockets.
