Adamite (Var: Cuprian Adamite)
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.8 x 2.9 cm
From a recent (2008) find at an old, classic locality. You can see the unusual dark green color of this new copper-rich (cuprian) adamite - here, represented in a pocket wall enclosed in limonite matrix. On close inspection, these crystals are actually quite transparent.
