There isn't any collector among us who would turn down a time-travel ticket back to 1981, when the first specimens of the great purple Adamites were discovered. This thumbnail has excellent color and gemminess, and well-represents what are, by far, the most desired examples of the species. Finding a good one today is near impossible, and an opportunity worth waiting for when it happens. Fluorescent, as well, as a bonus.
