Cabinet, 9.5 x 7.2 x 3.9 cm
Navidad Mine (Mina Navidad; Abasolo Mine; Rodeo Mine), Abasolo, Rodeo, Mun. de Rodeo, Durango, Mexico
A beautiful small cabinet specimen of connected intergrown balls of creedite and covered with gemmy, light-orange to colorless crystals. Good creedites were rare from any locality, until these orange ones were found in Mexico. Then, the mining was finished, apparently for good. The is an excellent, very near floater cluster of creedite, with only a few small points of attachment on the back and sides. This is a very showy, puffball-like cluster of creedite balls.
