Color and combination is what many collectors ask from Lavrion specimens and here is great one! To begin with, the piece is blue due to a layer of sparkling and gemmy crystals of adamite. This color in adamite is very very rare and it comes at its best from Lavrion. Then we have botryoids of smithsonite sitting atop the adamite and lastly, the smithsonites have a thin coating of sugary aragonite that gives them extra sparkle! A great miniature from a one-time find in mid-2014.
