Calcite on Adamite
stock #18-AX-11-280
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5 x 4.2 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $165


Sparkling reddish-pink Calcites encrust and contrast with green Adamite balls. Great luster and vivid color, this is hard to fully appreciate in photos but has really good display impact. Most of the Adamite is fully encased under the Calcite but it is seen clearly at some angles. Ojuela has produced many fine Adamites in many habits during a long history. This color combo is not so common, this miniature piece is in fine undamaged condition and would go well in a suite of choice Mexican minerals.
Adamite
stock #17.1-550
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.7 x 4.6 x 1.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Spring 2020

Adamite crystals standing up from the limonite matrix in both white and light mint green colors. Early seventies vintage specimen from Mina Ojuela, ex Les Hitchings collection. Vivid fluorescence and in excellent condition. A few Calcite crystals are also on the matrix but this is mostly all Adamite. So much good Adamite came out during that period in many habits that these were under respected. Currently much less is coming out and we know this was a golden age for the worlds best examples of this specie. Choice display with good visual impact for the size.
Adamite
stock #9.1-081
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.7 x 3.6 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $530
Spring 2020

Highly esthetic cluster of radiating fans and "pinwheels" of bright Adamite crystals with minimal matrix. In superb condition, damage free and displayable from several angles. The Ojuela mine has been operating for hundreds of years and has a well earned reputation for exceptional minerals many of which are worlds best. The Adamites from here are unquestionably the worlds best and come in many colors, forms and associations. The vivid lemon-green balls, fans and free standing pinwheels are one of the most desirable (and uncommon) forms. This is an older ex Ernie Schlichter specimen and a superb miniature with top brilliant luster. Vintage about 1975, this quality level has never been common and is now even more rare.
