A fairly significant specimen with robust, splaying crystals to over an INCH in size! Growing in a divergent spray, this specimen of adamite is glassy and translucent, with a yellow-green color. The largest crystal is 3.5 cm in length. These large, fat adamite crystals are probably the rarest habit, historically, for green-yellow adamite from here. I have seldom seen them so well formed, and this is definitely well formed with the large crystal perched in a cluster of smaller ones. make no mistake, amongst a crowd this is still important even though many more adamites have now been found - of different habits, though.
