Adamite is common from Lavrion but in tiny little crystals, usually 1-3mm long. This specimen hosts several pinwheels of pale greenish, translucent, lustrous adamite up 1.5cm across!! The crystal size is enormous for the locality. The adamites are resting on a bed of snowy calcite. No damage on the specimen just the typical peripheral contacts. A great adamite specimen for the European standards.
