Legrandite
Miniature, 3.9 x 2.5 x 2.1 cm
Flor de Pena Mine, Lampazos de Naranjo (Lampazos), Mun. de Lampazos de Naranjo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
SOLD
This is a very rare legrandite specimen from the type locality for the species: which is not Ojuela as most people think, but a smaller and earlier find in Nuevo Leon, within a completely different location and geology. This specimen is attractive in that the legrandite is contrasted against olive-green and brown, botryoidal, smithsonite (this association is a dead giveaway of its true origin, aside from the unique crystal form and notably radiating habit of the legrandite clusters themselves). Overall, it is a rich and showy piece. For the location, it's very good. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
