Adamite is a zinc arsenate hydroxide mineral. It is a mineral that typically occurs in the oxidized or weathered zone above zinc ore occurrences. Pure adamite is colorless, but usually it possess yellow color due to Fe compounds admixture.
Named by Charles Friedel in 1866 for Gilbert Joseph Adam (7 April 1795 Seine-et-Marne, Fontainbleau, France - 8 June 1881 Paris, France), Inspector (Auditor) of Finance for the French Government, who supplied the first specimens of his mineral. Adam was a wealthy mineral collector and his mineral collection was described in Annales des Mines in 1869 and later in a published catalog (1869). Adam was also the discoverer of aerugite, chenevixite, corkite, cuprotungstite, scacchite, and xanthiosite.
