Abundant, glistening, greenish-brown (included) adamite is associated with colorless gypsum needles to almost 1 cm in length. The adamite fluoresces green, brightly under shortwave UV and less so under longwave. The adamite/gypsum association is uncommon at the Ojuela Mine; of the 1016 Ojuela Mine adamite photos and 17 Ojuela Mine gypsum photos hosted at Mindat, only 8 feature this combination. Could be trimmed to about half-size to emphasize the adamite/gypsum patch, but some less consequential adamite would be lost. No damage.
