Choice, radial clusters of gemmy-to-translucent Adamite of a rich but unusual yellow-green color, with botryoidal clusters to about 3 cm. The almost amorphous shapes of the Adamites create a bewitching, surreal look when they fluoresce under UV light. Collected in 2017, this is a stunning small cabinet sized specimen with prominent crystal clusters well presented for display. It was kept in the personal collection of Christos Spiromitros, a dealer and collector who sold us others while keeping this back after purchasing the pocket. He considered it one of the best of class and style - and it is quite distinct from other Greek Adamite finds. The Calcite contrast makes it a world class example of the species, in terms of sparkle and contrast.
