From the famed Hilarion Mine, this thumbnail is a gorgeous, intensely-colored example of Cuprian Adamite with a unique cyan-blue color that is really difficult to photograph. It is not green as usual. It is not a pure blue. It is some unique color in the middle that is a cyan-blue (according to my website browser looking for synonyms here based on paint colors), and saturated in a manner hard to describe. It consists of highly lustrous crystal aggregates, measuring up to 1 cm across, on a small amount of gossan matrix. There are small, spiky clusters of white Aragonites on the Adamite, and these create an excellent contrast in both form and color between the minerals. Collected in 2022, it displays magnificently and is a competitive level thumbnail specimen with a color so shocking, that it just leaps out at you from a distance. Others were blue, or blue-green, but this was something special.
