Adamite -Manganoan
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
2.7 x 2 x 19 CM (thumbnail)
price: $475
Late Summer 2018

An especially esthetic, sharp flowerlike burst of Manganoan (purple-magenta tipped) Adamite. This cluster rests on a solid gossan matrix like an icecream cone, and has excellent proportions. Fine luster and condition, in person a little more purple color is noted. Ojuela produced only a few of these that looked this good, a quality, competitive thumbnail. Collected pre 2000, perhaps much older.
