Lavrion is famous for many species but one of the most popular of them is adamite, for being an old-time classic and for holding the scepters of the best European adamite. Here is a magnificent and special, unique minature. The piece almost has no matrix and is composed of gemmy, sparkling, green cuprian adamite crystals! The shape is also great. It comes from a small find that was made in October, 2018 in the Christiana mine and is among a handful of specimens with that style, at the top percentile of the pocket! From my personal collection.
