A group of lustrous and seafoam blue green crystals of cuprian adamite form a flower on top of a limonite gossan. The side of the piece shows a matrix with vug formations lined in various reddish to rust to orange brown colors. The crystals are well defined and teal in the major grouping and tiny diamond shaped crystals of a greener adamite areas over the rest of the piece. Copper bearing adamite is much rarer than typical adamite and is highly sought for its coloration.
