Adamite is a zinc arsenate mineral, with an orthorhombic crystal structure, and it often occurs in radiated aggregates of fan-shaped rosettes.
The majority of specimens are an inch or less in diameter. It is usually a bright yellow-green colour, but it can also be honey-yellow, brown white, pale green, blue-green or colourless. It forms in oxidised parts of ore veins, especially arsenic-rich zinc deposits.
Most of the finest pieces of Adamite are from Mexico and Namibia.


Adamite may help one to move out of passive mode and into an active, dynamic and expressive relationship with others and with the world around one. Itís said to help one to remain playful, joyful, patient and kind.

On a Physical side Adamite is said to be a stimulating to the endocrine system, particularly the section of the love-and-joy-related hormones. This is said to help with those who may feel depressed or experience strong symptoms related to hormonal imbalance such as PMS, SAD or other cyclical hormone related imbalances, chronic fatigue disorder, or a general lack of energy.
