ID: CC17505
A superb small cabinet specimen of drusy sky-blue to turquoise-green Cuprian Adamite covering white bubbly Aragonite over a rusty brown Goethite gossan matrix.  This is a rich and beautifully coloured Cuprian Adamite from the Kamariza mines in the Lavrion mining district of southern Greece.  For reference, the town of Kamariza which has lent its name to the labyrinth of underground mine workings in the area is now known as Agios Konstantinos.  I have collected many times in this area and from experience know this Cuprian Adamite to be a fine example.
