Paradamite is a rare zinc arsenate, found in only three localities worldwide. Mina Ojuela is the Type Locality and this fine specimen also includes legrandite which is a rare combination. This fine thumbnail features a beautifully placed, angled legrandite crystal flanked by lustrous and gemmy, yellow paradamite crystals on the bit of gossan matrix. Ex. Dave Stoudt Collection.
