Adamite (Var: Cuprian Adamite)
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 4.2 x 2.4 x 1.8 cm
An aesthetic column of intergrown clusters of very sparkly, translucent, sea-green, bladed botryoids of cuprian adamite from the Mina Ojuela of Mexico. The clusters sit nicely on a bit of contrasting gossan matrix and remind me of stylized, shrub sculpture. Classic, older material from this renowned locale. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
