Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.6 x 2.4 cm
I do not use the word lightly - this is a "magnificent" cluster of glassy and gemmy, lime colored adamite, measuring 2.5 cm across. It has crazy, sick luster to it, and is translucent. It is emplaced on a matrix of limonite. It is easy to discern the growth of individual crystals within the mass cluster. This is definitely a competition quality miniature adamite specimen that leaps out at you, on first glance. In a vote at the office, 4 out of jaded 4 collectors were impressed, what can I say!?
