Item Description

Two striking rich mint-green, very glassy fluorite octahedrons, to 1.7 cm, are a dramatic, colorful and uncommon accessory on this striking partially hollow "pineapple" of creedite crystals from this well-known locale. The sharp, burnt-orange, glassy, translucent creedite prisms reach about 1.7 cm, and are fairly large for the locale. Complete all-around and in great shape. There are very few broken creedite crystals on the piece and the bit of periphery wear below the fluorite octos is certainly only a modest detraction. Fluorite on creedite specimens of this quality were only a very small percentage of the material produced. From finds in the 2000s to 2011, with none since. This locality may be extinct, as we have heard that the tunnel collapsed. This is a really good example!
