Ex. Jim White
This special variety of intense saturated green adamite came only once, from a pocket associated with schultenite (in the 1980s?), and is the deepest and richest color you can ask for, combined with luster and sparkle. Although some are damaged, the piece hosts a number of very sharp crystals to 1 cm in massive matrix.
