Adamite came out in the 1960s through early 1980s here in a variety of habits, and the most classic is perhaps the pinwheel style. However, this piece is a bit unusual, in that it features splaying, individual, fat crystals to 2 cm, with more definition of the individual crystals and of their crystal faces, then you normally see. The piece has a particularly attractive spray atop. This was formerly in the worldwide collection of collector Marshall Sussman, who sold this in 1996 or so as he changed his collection over to all Tsumeb and Namibian minerals. Note, as a bonus, the intense neon green fluorescence under UV light. Joe Budd Photos.
