Cuprian adamite is a HIGHLY DESIRABLE and uncommon species from the very famous and now-closed Tsumeb Mine. This very RICH and showy specimen is covered with sharp, pastel blue-green crystals, which are partially coated by a druse of sparkly dolomite. The 3-dimensional, sculptural and cast matrix adds a nice effect. CHOICE material from the Rob Smith Collection, a noted Tsumeb collector.
