Large Cabinet, 18.6 x 11.3 x 10.5 cm
Navidad Mine (Mina Navidad; Abasolo Mine; Rodeo Mine), Abasolo, Rodeo, Mun. de Rodeo, Durango, Mexico
As with the pink fluorites from the same locality, until these creedites were discovered, good crystallized specimens were exceedingly rare and expensive from ANY locality. Over the past few years, because of this find, you could buy a rich creedite specimen without selling your house to get it. BUT THIS MINING IS NOW FINISHED, we are told by the guys who mined it! This one is really hard to believe: a GIGANTIC matrix covered with crystals, to over a centimeter in length. Some areas of the matrix are crystallized, some are not, but crystals do cover MOST of the surface area of this monster! 18.6 x 11.3 x 10.5cm
