Adamite - classic pinwheel clusters
stock #9.1-018
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.5 x 3.8 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $650
Pre Tucson

Very fine light yellow-green crystals of Adamite arranged in the "pinwheel" type of radiating spray. A choice miniature in excellent undamaged condition from the classic finds about 20 years ago at Mina Ojuela. Good Mexican Adamites were once rather plentiful but this quality and form were never common. These are now quite hard to find and this is an especially elegant and esthetic piece. The radiating sprays exceed 2 CM across, these contrast with the gossan matrix. Displays well from most any angle, and the matrix is not the ultra fragile, crumbly type.
