Lustrous green cuprian adamite crystals to 7 mm RICHLY cover matrix on this excellent specimen from Tsumeb. A very desirable Tsumeb species, hard to find in good pieces. Ex Ed Ruggiero Collection, who purchased this piece from Zweibels in June, 1976. Such sharply crystallized cuprian adamites are uncommon and occur only at this mine, in this habit..
