Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 4.3 x 3.4 cm
Navidad Mine (Mina Navidad; Abasolo Mine; Rodeo Mine), Abasolo, Rodeo, Mun. de Rodeo, Durango, Mexico
A fine large miniature specimen of two 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. This is a stacked, puffball-like cluster of creedite balls, with several very prominent, larger crystals, which are uncommon.
