Cabinet, 10.4 x 8.8 x 6.6 cm
Navidad Mine (Mina Navidad; Abasolo Mine; Rodeo Mine), Abasolo, Rodeo, Mun. de Rodeo, Durango, Mexico
A beautiful cabinet specimen of connected intergrown balls of creedite and covered with gemmy, light-orange to colorless crystals. This excellent piece even has some purple creedite blades, which are rather rare for this find. 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 very showy, puffball-like cluster of creedite balls.
