Adamites from Ojuela are absolute classics, whether the habit is a single crystal, fan, pinwheel, or spherical cluster. However, the pinwheels or "roses" are the most rare and classic of all. These date to the 1960s and indeed, this piece was purchased in 1970. A perfect miniature: This thick pinwheel has the superb luster and greenish-yellow color that you would want from Ojuela, and it simply sparkles in every direction. As you would expect, it has a brilliant neon green fluorescence. Competitive-level miniature!
