Two Adamite druses partly cover the limonite base of this hand specimen. Each of these druses is made up of dozens of limonite crystals that do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) along any axis and are generally in very good condition. Their orthorhombic prismatic form is not very easy to study but appears to be very good. All have the standard yellow-green coloration and adamantine luster and are transparent and dimly to moderately clear, containing internal fractures, cloudy inclusions, or both.
