ID: CC6263

Well formed bladed almost platy crystals of Adamite with Smithsonite and Tsumcorite from the famous Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Lustrous crystals of Adamite measure to 1cm richly covering much of the matrix, having a translucent light yellow to white colour. Associated with abundant translucent white rice-grain crystals of Smithsonite and scattered micro-crystalline to botryoidal areas of yellow to brown Tsumcorite. Adamite specimens with no copper content from the Tsumeb Mine are considered uncommon, and this is a fine example of 'pure' Adamite.
