Adamite Locality: Ojuela Mine, Mapimí, Municipio de Mapimí, Durango, Mexico (Locality at mindat.org) Size: small cabinet, 8.5 x 6.25 x 4.5 cm Adamite While there have been thousands of adamites, seldom do you get such aesthetics, such balance, combined with the ultimate in glassy lustre and translucent yellow-green color-saturation. This piece has long been held as the "model" for what a killer adamite of this habit (so-called "green pinwheels") should look like, and was a signature piece of the collection.
