Legrandite w. Smithsonite etc.
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.2 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Pre Holiday 2017

Gem clear bright yellow crystals of the Legrandite in several vugs on a Gossan matrix. A sprinkling of slender white Smithsonite crystals are also in some of the vugs as well, along with micro crystals that I can not identify. Many Legrandite crystals are perfect, undamaged and highly lustrous, but this is not a specimen for perfectionists since there are also some broken crystals in a few areas. For such a delicate mineral the condition overall is incredible, especially since some crystals protrude outside the protective vugs. Displays nicely but could be trimmed to make top notch thumbnail(s) if desired. As a rule these older Legrandites are very expensive even with some damage, this one is quite reasonable.
