This specimen is nearly 100% adamite, consisting of hemispherical clusters of closely-spaced, lustrous and greenish-brown adamite crystals. Weighs a massive 276 grams. Green fluorescence under UV; strong under shortwave (second and sixth photos but these doesn't capture the true brilliance) and weaker (but still very evident) under longwave. A few nearly invisible scuffs and the usual edge-of-specimen issues do not detract. Displays nicely. A lot of adamite on this piece.
