Adamite (Var: Cuprian Adamite)
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 4.0 x 3.6 cm
This is a very unusual specimen of adamite from Mapimi - both for its mint-green color, and the form of crystallization: a combination of wheels and botryoidal forms. The adamite lines a pocket in the typical Mapimi limonitic matrix.
