This is a very aesthetic and colorful adamite specimen that features a large "sphere" of unusual 3-dimensional robustness, approximately 2 inches across, capped by a few loose crystals of adamite perched atop. The whole cluster is perched atop a thick layer of adamite crystallized like cauliflower, beneath. This is an old specimen of unusual style. From the George Elling collection, by exchange. With the sale a few years ago of the Marty Zinn collection adamites by another dealership, I have seen prices on these old Mexico classics go to the levels of tourmaline and gold. This specimen really stands out from the crowd. As a bonus, the piece has incredible ultra-neon-green fluorescence under UV light as well Joe Budd photo.
