RM1993   Smithsonite with adamite

Ojuela mine, Mapimí, Municipio de Mapimí, Durango, México

Very, very aesthetic specimen, unusual, showing two globular aggregates of smithsonite, colorless, transparent that let us see a whitish crystal aggregate core, with very curious growth. They are accompanied by small crystals of the same species in the form of globular grains. To give a touch of color and quality, several aggregates of olive green adamite crystals, visible terminal faces, bright, translucent and sprinkling the goethite matrix. It is an exceptional and rare old material from the Manchion Collection. Probably this specimen comes from the Palomas Oriente area of the mine. Pure aesthetics... With the label from Manchion Collection.
