A group of lustrous and and seafoam blue green crystals of cuprian adamite form a flower on a limonite gossan. The side of the piece shows a matrix with vug formations lined in various reddish to rust colors. The crystals are slightly greener than what appears in the photos and are well defined. Many of the small matrix vugs show small crystals and give a nice demonstration of how the crystals formed when the piece is viewed from the side. From the front, the piece sculptural and aesthetic.
