Legrandite is a hydrated zinc arsenate mineral originally found in Mexico. The name honors a Belgian mining engineer. Dunn (1995) describes legrandite from Sterling Hill. On this specimen legrandite forms a crystalline coating, colorless to yellow, on a fracture in calcite-franklinite ore. Rich piece for the locality.

This specimen comes from the Bob Trimingham collection, a collector from Livermore, California. His detailed collection card indicates purchase from Parker Minerals in 1979.
