ID: CC2985

Well formed crystals of tricoloured Adamite with Malachite from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Crystals of Cuprian Adamite measuring to 0.7cm have formed as single crystals and intergrown on a reddish Goethite/Hematite matrix. The Adamite was evidently first deposited as gemmy to translucent yellow crystals, covered by green Cuprian Adamite, and a final phase of pastel green Cuprian Adamite. The Malachite forms as deep green drusy botryoid cluster at the central area of the specimen. A small amount of dark olive green Olivenite is also present.
