Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 3.2 x 2.6 x 1.2 cm
Ex. James and Dawn Minette
A superb rarity that also happens to be beautiful and unique in quality to a few small pockets at this location, 30-40 years ago, legrandite is highly desired by collectors today. This is a sharp, very well-terminated cluster of unusually sharp legrandite crystals, from the classic old finds here (late 70s, early 80s). This piece is a very large thumbnail or small miniature, stood upright. It has for decades in the noted world-class thumbnail collection of Jim and Dawn Minette. It was in their competition cases on at least several occasions that I can recall, and still retains the special lucite, labeled display base which they had for some exhibits. Joe Budd Photos.
