Item Description

These distinctive range Creedite specimens from the Navidad Mine are some of the most impressive examples of the species ever found. Creedite isn't necessarily rare, but it's not easy to find excellent crystallized specimens from any locality. One could say that an argument could be made in support of the fact that the finest crystallized specimens of Creedite in the world are those from this mine. If you consider the sheer number of fine quality display specimens that have been found (many of which are larger than average sizes) combined with the rare and eye-catching orange color, and you have something special. Sometimes in the mineral world, the quantity of specimens found might make people think they aren't as desirable, but these pieces are truly remarkable for what they are. You never seen orange Creedite like this from anywhere else, and the style and quality of the pieces is about as good as you can ask for. This piece is a fine quality crystallized spherical "spray" comprising dozens of sharp, well-formed, lustrous, gemmy, orange colored prismatic crystals of Creedite, with individual crystals measuring up to 1.3 cm. The piece is nearly crystallized all the way around, save a point of attachment on the base where it was removed from the pocket wall. A very impressive and good example of the oft-underappreciated pieces from Mexico. Specimen weight is 126 grams.
From the collection of the beloved mineral dealer and collector Rock H. Currier (1940-2015) who was the long-time owner of Jewel Tunnel Imports. Collection #7310. Rock travelled the world in search of mineral specimens, and built and impressive collection over his lifetime. He was one of the more colorful and unforgettable figures in the mineral world.
