Item Description

This is one of the most unusual and at the same time, most attractive adamite specimens we have seen from Mina Ojuela. The three, classic, gemmy and lustrous, yellow-green pinwheels are strikingly set in separate "pockets" or compartments in the box-work gossan matrix. The limonite septae and the arrangement of the pinwheels are truly a marvel to behold. There are several more pinwheels on the back of the piece. Outstanding and aesthetic material from the Howard Belsky Collection. Super fluorescence. Valued at $800-1000 and worth it for quality.
