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. Suddenly, you could own a really fine creedite without selling your house to get it! HOWEVER, we are told by the miners that the mining is FINISHED; there will be no more coming out! This is a ball-shaped cluster sitting stop a larger one, covered with large, gemmy orange creedite crystals to one centimeter in length! The entire thing is a floater; no contacts. 11 x 7.5 x 7 cm
