Cuprian Adamite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 4.4 x 3.4 x 3.3 cm
Contrasting beautifully with the underlying limonite matrix is a cluster of glassy and gemmy, rich, emerald green, cuproadamaite crystals, to 1.0 cm in length. The way the crystals are aesthetically nestled in a vug, is particularly appealing (andbetter shown off in person where the 3-dimensionality is more evident). A superb miniature!
