Adamite (Var: Cuprian Adamite)
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Thumbnail, 1.3 x 1.1 x 1.0 cm
A vivid green Cuprian Adamite specimen from the historic Ojuela mine in Mexico. The color is about as bright green as Adamite gets from any locality. The piece is in good condition overall, though it is contacted on two sides. But the color is what matters here. This mine is well known for its amazingly intense colors of Adamite, and this little thumbnail is certainly a great example of said material. Ex. Brian Kosnar.
