- Adamite Var. Manganoan
- Miniature, 5.2 x 3.5 x 1.8 cm
- Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Perched high on a matrix of manganese oxides host rock, are crystals of manganoan purple adamite to 2 cm in length. The crystals are lustrous, translucent, with rich pink-pink terminations. A classic from the one-time find in 1981! Large robust crystals like this are uncommon on the market today, and this is a fine miniature with what most would consider to be rather large crystals.
