Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 7.8 x 7.7 cm
Navidad Mine (Mina Navidad; Abasolo Mine; Rodeo Mine), Abasolo, Rodeo, Mun. de Rodeo, Durango, Mexico
One of two creedites in this set of auctions, in two different sizes. This is the larger of the two, a large, complete floater BALL, covered all the way around with crystals! 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. Then, a couple of months back, we heard that the mining was FINISHED, supposedly for good. So if you do not have one, well, here is another chance. We were lucky enough to put some aside before the mining stopped. This fine, large floater ball is covered with large, gemmy orange creedite crystals to over one centimeter in length! 8.7 x 7.8 x 7.7cm
