Item Description

Highly prized in most collections, Adamite is usually found in blocky to elongated orthorhombic blades. Here you have beautifully developed thin crystals grouped to form a stunning radial fan or "pinwheel," as the collectors call them. With such a rich yellow color and excellent luster, this incredibly aesthetic specimen is super-choice. A classic style from the 1960s-early 1980s, not seen in decades. Ex Rock Currier Collection, a fine competitive miniature. Valued $2000. Crystal cluster is 3.3 cm across, fully 3-dimensional!
