Adamite (Var: Cuprian Adamite)
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 7.0 x 5.0 cm
Scintillating, gemmy, sea-green cuprian adamite crystals in rounded aggregates beautifully line the vug in the sculptural crust of sturdy gossan matrix in this very aesthetic specimen from the 2008 finds at the Mina Ojuela. Classic, very high quality cuprian adamite with excellent color from this noted locale. This is one of the prettier large plates of this material from the find. Ex. Brent Lockhart Collection.
