This specimen is a nearly flat plate of closely-packed, green-brown and lustrous adamite crystals, with just a little limonite matrix. (The color is a darker, muddier brown than my lousy photos suggest.) Sparkles quite nicely, but individual crystals become well-defined when illuminated with shortwave UV, which produces green fluorescence. Currently attached to a square acrylic stand on which it displays quite nicely, but the stand could easily be removed if desired. Overall condition is quite nice.
