Item Description

Scintillating, gemmy, golden-yellow legrandite crystals cover the gossan crust on this excellent, rich and rare specimen from the Type Locality, not the more well-known Mina Ojuela (a little-known fact, it seems, as people ASSUME Ojuela to be type locale for this species because of its famous large pieces). The Flor de Pena Mine is a smaller and earlier find in Nuevo Leon, within a completely different location and geology. The richness and coverage of the crystals is exceptional. Hard to get in this quality. Ex Dave Stoudt Collection.
