A typical Ojuela Mine limonite matrix hosts a rich coverage of lustrous, sparkly, and sharply-formed adamite crystals. These adamites have spotty brown inclusions (probably limonite) and individual crystals reach about 7 mm. Unlike most other Ojuela Mine adamite specimens this one has only minimal green fluorescence under shortwave UV. Minor calcite also present. A very few, tiny bruises are seen under magnification, bit overall the specimen is in fine condition.
