Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.0 x 2.6 cm
Nestled in a vug of limonite are crystals, to 1.5 cm in length, of glassy and gemmy, lime-colored adamite. The single isolated 1.3-cm crystal is doubly terminated and stands starkly apart in its form and coloration (slightly paler, like pear-green). It is a very dramatic combination, and you do not usually see the two habits in combination on the same specimen.
