Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
SOLD
Isolated, fat crystals of adamite are actually very uncommon, even here at this once-productive locality. Pieces like this, with a radial grouping of such crystals - never were common. The piece features over a dozen such robust crystals to nearly 2 cm tall, curling up and over the top of a knoll of gossan matrix. It is aesthetic, sparkly, and colorful. More than that, it is a rare and beautiful style that sticks out amongst more common crystal formations for adamite at this important locality. It is old, certainly pre-1980s, we think.
