Cabinet, 11.6 x 7.4 x 7.1 cm
Navidad Mine (Mina Navidad; Abasolo Mine; Rodeo Mine), Abasolo, Rodeo, Mun. de Rodeo, Durango, Mexico
A SUPERB specimen, with BIG crystals all over it! 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, evidently 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 is a large specimen richly covered with large, gemmy orange creedite crystals to 1.5 centimeter in length! The contacts are on the back side so it offers a fine display face, as you can see. 11.6 x 7.4 x 7.1 cm
