Ojuela Mine, Level 6, Municipio de Mapimi
6.2 x 5.2 x 5 CM (cabinet)
A fine and pretty matrix Legrandite with sharp canary yellow crystals protected in a vug. The condition as seen is excellent and undamaged despite the fragility of this rare mineral. While this could be trimmed to a fine thumbnail the larger matrix seems fine to me as is showing many other vugs and associations adding interest. Choice.
A Mexican classic! The Adamites of the Ojuela Mine are probably the worlds best. Many styles and colors are known, but almost nothing of quality has been found for many years. This type of ball aggregate is very desirable, getting hard to find and usually very expensive. On this one the large ball is 2.3 CM and well placed, it is fully crystallized with good green color. A flat spot on the top seems to be a contact but there is no damage anyplace. Quite esthetic and very well priced.
