Description

Superb Adamite associated with clear Smithsonite and Aragonite from Lavrion Greece! The intense neon turquoise color of this Adamite is due to rare earth elements. The specimen is actually covered with this rare Adamite all around but at the back of the piece the Smithsonite and the Aragonite cover it totally. Beautiful specimen!
