Ex. Jim White
An excellent, radiating cluster of gemmy and lustrous, purple creedite crystals to 1.9 cm on matrix, from the 1980 find at the Aqshatau Mine of Kazakhstan. Creedite is a rare complex aluminum salt. The purple crystals from here are classic and rare, having been found long ago, and are MUCH more rare than similar crystals from Mexico. This has a glassy brightness to it and is a superb large thumbnail or small miniature specimen Ex. Jim White Collection
