Description:

In early 2017, we had this find of some of the best adamites to have ever come from Lavrion. For the locality, the yellowish color is a big rarity but even more special is the size of the crystals/clusters. This is a fine miniature example with yellow, gemmy pinwheels of adamite on white crystals of calcite. The largest pinwheel is 1cm across, a remarkable size for Lavrion. Please note that Greece is no Mexico for yellow adamite, we are offering a beautiful, rare locality style of the species with significant importance for this ancient mining district.
