Christiana mine, Lavrion, Greece

Species: Adamite
Locality: Christiana mine, Lavrion, Greece
Specimen Dimensions: 5.8x3.7x3.1cm
Size: Miniature
Availability: Available


Despite the fact that the color is pale, this is a killer adamite miniature from Greece. The crystal size is enormous for Lavrion and the main adamite measures 2cm across! This size is phenomenal for the Greek standards as we are used in seeing tiny little crystals of adamite from the country. The luster is fine and the crystalline spheroids are translucent. A quite large aggregate at the bottom is mostly covered with calcite. From a recent find in the Christiana mine!
