Legrandite, a rare zinc arsenate species, forms spectacular lemon-yellow, typically radiating crystals, but is only found at a handful of localities in the world. By far the most significantly of these is the Ojuela mine in Mapimi, Durango Mexico, where spectacular specimens such as the "Aztec sun" legrandite have been found. This is a very fine matrix specimen, featuring a spray of vibrant-yellow, lustrous radiating legrandite crystals to ~2.5 cm. on gossan matrix. A choice example of this rare species from a classic locale. These are getting quite hard to find on the market these days. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
