Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 3.2 x 0.8 x 0.6 cm
An elegant, flaring Legrandite crystal with stunning and vibrant electric-yellow color. The luster is superb, and the gemminess allows it to have a dazzling chatoyant shimmer. At 3.2 cm, this is an impressively-sized, well-formed Legrandite, and it is even better in person! Even brighter, even more aesthetic, and even more lemon yellow. It is hard to convey in photos the shock value of the best qualities of a legrandite. This is of early 1980s vintage.
