Description

Even if there is nothing too special about it, I consider this a great piece! The adamite crystals grow on limnite matrix on all sides and in cavities in such a great contrast and balance!They are lustrous and sharp and grown in small groups. The matrix is limonite, but of soft shape and velvet texture!The overall aesthetics are what make the piece perfect for photography!
