Adamite var Cuprian


Availability: 1 in stock

Amongst the many flats I sorted through were a half dozen that had old Consie Prince adamites. The variety was pretty good and some more distinct specimens were to be had at VERY reasonable prices. This super rich specimen has the greenish aggregates of prismatic crystals covering much of the gossan matrix. Very stable and viewable from any front angle. What appears as damage is reflection off more defined and isolated crystals. Fluorescent.
