A splendid cluster of botryoidal Adamite formations adorns this specimen. It has a uniformly pale yellow-green color and the adamantine luster whence it got its name, and is translucent. The orbs that make up the cluster do not exceed 1/2"(1.3 cm) in diameter, and some that are along the edge of the specimen are broken, showing the acicular, radiating habit of the Adamite blades. This botryoidal crust is wedged between a matrix of quartzite and one of limonite. It sparkles quite well.
