ID: CC7891
An attractive, classic bright acid yellow and creamy lemon fan of radial crystalline Legrandite from its type locality at the Flor de Pena mine in Mexico, with a further spray of Legrandite to one side. Associated with micro-crystals of light brown Adamite on a red-brown Goethite matrix, the main spray of Legrandite fans out to 4.2 cm with individual acicular crystals of up to 3 cm.  The smaller spray of Legrandite is 1 cm tall, laying horizontally across the vuggy surface of the matrix.  The patchwork of rich acidic yellow and pale, creamy lemon crystals is a most pleasing combination.  Legrandite is a rare zinc arsenate and makes here forms a splendid large miniature which will display well.
