Item Description

A nice, attractive specimen of Cuprian Adamite featuring dozens if not hundreds of micro rich blue-green colored, bipyramidal crystals coated by micro drusy Quartz on matrix. Despite the smaller size of the crystals, the quality is excellent, showing bright luster, razor sharp faces, and great gemminess! Obviously, the crystals are best seen under higher magnification, If you collect minerals from Lavrion (Lavrion), don't miss out on this one, as they are not seen on the market these days. This particular piece was recently collected, and is very similar to the old classic specimens from years ago. The famous mines around this historic district have produced some of the most well known and distinctive minerals from any European locality. Mining took place around this area as far back as the Bronze Age as analysis of ancient isotopes of lead in the objects from that time indicate they were manufactured, in large part, with metal from the Lavrion.
