Adamite
stock #ALEC-29-113
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
8.2 x 5.2 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
pre Tucson 2015 update

An eye popping Adamite composed mostly of "pinwheel" habit crystal aggregates on contrasting matrix. Fine luster and in excellent condition damagewise, this has good esthetic and colorful presentation. The matrix is a mix of Botryoidal Geothite and tiny Adamite crystals. The red color on some pinwheels seems to be from Fe oxides on and in the green and yellowish Adamites. Better Ojuela Adamites (which are the best in the world) have gotten quite hard to get at a reasonable price, this one is far better than average and a very good value.
