Slender, prismatic, and straight, these beautiful Cuprian Adamites have a most unusual habit for the species. Protected within a vug, they reach up to 6 mm in length and retain their individuality nicely. Gemmy and highly lustrous, they look like they could be sculpted Emeralds, the color is so rich and vivid. This is a delicate and uncommon specimen, with crystals that have a unique aesthetic.
