Equant crystals, to .7 cm across, of apple green cuproadamite abound on this matrix. The crystals are very lustrous and the crystal size is very large for this particular habit. There is also a contrasting olive green coating of duftite in the background, carpeting the matrix. This piece is significant for the overall size of the coverage and of the crystals themselves.
