Description:One of the classic Creedites from the Rodeo Mine featuring very sharp, lustrous, classic orange colored crystals in a radial "spray" formation sitting on a mint green colored octahedral Fluorite The Creedite "spray" measures 2.3 cm at its widest dimension. A gorgeous and showy thumbnail and it's not common to see Creedite ON Fluorite as opposed to the other way around. Creedite is actually named after the town of Creede in Colorado, where it was first discovered, but other world discoveries later were much more significant, so people don't associate this species with Colorado often. This piece is beautiful with lovely contrasting coloration. Valued at $800. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
