One of the most rare and desired classics of Mexican minerals and just in general, are these beautiful purple adamites; perched high on a matrix of manganese oxides host rock, are crystals of manganoan purple adamite to 2 cm in length from the most important finds of this varietal of the species, a few pockets in the early 1980s. The crystals are lustrous, translucent, with rich pink-pink terminations. A classic from the one-time find in 1981! Large robust crystals like this are uncommon on the market today, and this is a fine miniature with what most would consider to be rather large crystals. For those who know what they are looking at, it is self-explanatory. This is a significant specimen at a bargain price, from an old collection.
