stock #18-AX-11-043
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.

Spring update

Delicate sprays of Adamite in the classic fan form that are nicely perched on mix of Gossan and other Adamites. Attractive small miniature in fine condition, with fans up to 1.8 CM.

Adamite- Multi-color radiating crystals
stock #18-AX-11-273
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
9.1 x 7.8 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
Spring update

A large matrix specimen with big sunburst habit Adamite crystals prominent on contrasting matrix. The radiating crystals are also multicolored, with yellow, magenta and greenish hues. Aside from some small contacts the condition is fine. The largest cluster is sizable at 3.7 CM in diameter. A great example of the specie and a very attractive Ojuela piece as well. Several small sprays of multicolored Adamites are scattered on the back and edges but the main sunburst is the main feature by far.

stock #10.1-165
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.8 x 3.8 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $320

Ex Marty Zinn collection, a very three dimensional specimen with glassy prisms standing on end above the reddish matrix. several fan aggregates are present as well as isolated single crystals with transparent tips. In excellent undamaged condition.
Adamite- gemmy crystals on gossan
stock #18.1-139
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
7.8 x 5.8 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Spring update

A pretty and unusual Adamite from 1960 vintage finds at Mina Ojuela. There are two generations of well crystallized Adamite on matrix, the first is a light green to lemon yellow chisel-tipped type, the second is colorless to white. Bright and vividly sparkling in person, the luster and quality are impressive. More recent specimens have a very different look. Very strong fluorescence as well, this has far better esthetics than typical Mexican Adamite.
Adamite (yellow, non cuprian) with Malachite, Rosasite etc.

Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
3.3 x 2.3 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $330
Pre Holiday 2017

A rare yet quite pretty Tsumeb specimen, Adamite that is not the usual Cuprian (green) variety. The wheat sheaf type crystal clusters are lemon yellow, contrasting with Malachite balls some with a tinge of Rosasite. In fine condition, no damage at all by naked eye but with 20X magnification some very tiny areas of chipping can be found, virtually perfect.

Spring 2017

A fine classic specimen from the Tintic District, ex Northwestern University Museum, Charles Noll, David Crawford etc. Bright Cuprian Adamite crystals sparkle against Azurite and Conichalcite on a gossan matrix with traces of Cuprite. Comes with several labels, is in fine condition, undamaged, and clearly a very old specimen. Almost never seen on the market today, from a significant US locality.
