This is a classic pinwheel-shaped cluster of crystallized adamite from the most famous locality for the species, and one of the most famous pockets as well. It is notable for the soft apple-green color and fantastic luster. It is the fine thumbnail specimen from a very special pocket of the early 1980s that Bill kept for their thumbnail collection for its special shape and color. The miniature-sized version, from the same pocket, is featured on the cover of his famous book. From the award-winning thumbnail collection of Sharon and William Panczner, author of the book Minerals Of Mexico, and last seen and exhibited in the 1960s.
