RM1849   Legrandite

Ojuela mine, Mapimí, Municipio de Mapimí, Durango, Mexico

This specimen of legrandite shows us a group of sharp crystals of this rare zinc arsenate, with an intense orange-yellow color. It is common that some crystals appears fractured, but in this sample there are several perfect prismatic crystals, undamaged, brilliant and with an incredible transparence. I personally like isolated crystals and this piece is one of them. Good size, brightness and aesthetics, very representative for the species. Accompanied by elongated smithsonite white crystals.

Size: 7 x 4 x 3.5 cm.
Main crystal: 4 mm.
Found in 2017

Classic locality
