An elegant, very unusual, sculpture-like cluster of creedite. It is REALLY mesmerizing in person, and quite 3-dimensional despite being a thin plate overall. The crystals here have a moderate color, similar to old finds at this locale and not intense orange, but they have the transparency and high glassy lustre of this new, deeper pocket. Amidst so many "balls" , the few good clusters like this really stand out.
A very attractive, salmon-orangey spray of creedites. The color here is more typical of older finds, not intense orange. Still, it has the lustre and transparency of the new material, and so sparkles nicely! This piece has superb, elongated crystals to about 1.5 cm all over it, and is complete around the backside (though with smaller crystals)
Intensely orange crystals to 1.7 cm spray out form all directions along the top of a ridge of fluorite, which they encrust. This is one of the more dramatic pieces I nteh lot to my eye for the isolation and size of the crystals, and the fact that it is NOT a ball shaped aggregate, like all others here, but rather formed on top of a fluorite crystal cluster. The front side (left image) is pristine, although the back is not: nevertheless, it displays well enough from either side, visually. Still, I find the side I call the front , which also has thebest condition, to be more appealing because of the contrast to the fluorite underneath.
A lustrous, spiky ball of creedite crystals perched on matrix! Matrix pieces are very uncommon.This one is nearly complete around the back, and LOOKS very fine, though it has a small damaged or contacted area o the right side (and hence the lower price compared to if the right side was a swell-crystallized as the rest). Still, it looks very fine, the matrix perch is eye-catching, and numerous crystals reach 1 cm.All have excellent color and lustre characteristic of this new find
It may not LOOK much bigger than the previous specimens, but it is actually quite a bit more hefty and sizable in person. Plus, this piece has very intense orange, robust crystals , many of them exceeding 1 cm. For a good ball-shaped cluster from this new find I regard it as one of the better deals in the lot both for quality and size balance.
This hemispherical specimen features superb, long, intense orange crystals with unusual robust width, to 1.5 cm
A sparkling, jewel-like, floater cluster of two balls, smushed together to form an oblong cluster , sparkling and shooting out crystals in all directions. Very near to pristine, this is a floater!
Sharp, elongated crystals to 1.7 cm form two hemispheres, around a central cavity, on this fine specimen that look slike it has a donut hole in the middle. It has unusually transparent crystals, and many are of large size. Excellent for specie sand locale, this is a great piece for the price range as well (and if you saw 1000 in one place, as I did, you would see how this one stands out pretty dramatically from the crowd). MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!
A superb, complete-all-around, very equant and spherical cluster with sharp crystals and high lustre. Almost pristine, with just very minor missing xls here or there (as with many such specimens). A floater!
A superb, complete-all-around, very equant and spherical cluster with sharp crystals and high lustre that is better than most such specimens in the past. Remarkably, among the most pristine examples we have found. Crystals to 1.7 cm - large for the locale. A floater!
A major example for this size range, that is a robust spherical aggregate with SHARP crystals to 1.75 cm spiking out. In person, for the size of the crystals, this is most dramatic.
A sparkling doublet of two radial clusters, complete all around- a total floater except only for a small contact at its bottom base! The robust, deeply colored crystals are to 1 cm, and with very high lustre to them. It is in exceptional condition and is one of the best of the smaller ones I have had. This piece has a lot of drama and eye appeal to it, and looks like nothing so much as an orange evergreen tree in person
One of my favorites, this is one of a very few matrix specimens. The crystals are unusually gemmy and transparent though not the intense reddish-orange of some here (pale peach colored in person). This radiating ball is ON MATRIX, and the crystals spray out dramatically, contrasting to the flat attached matrix plate below. Except for a small contact on back, the ball is complete all around, like a disco ball.
A sparkling doublet of two radial clusters, complete all aroun d- a total floater! Crystals are to 1 cm, and with very high lustre to them
