I first owned this adamite back in the early 1990s and was happy to find it turn up again, instantly remembered because of the interesting shape of the "wave" of adamite atop a nicely balanced matrix (I am biased, having done a risky trim on a bigger specimen using a hammer and chisel at the time). The cresting cluster of adamite curves around the top and is quite complete on the upper horizon. It is a gorgeous piece. As a bonus, it fluoresces intensely under UV light as shown. Joe Budd Photos.
