Item Description

Scintillating, gemmy pretty lavender creedite microcrystals are attractively festooned on the sculptural large quartz-rich matrix. Creedite was the signature species from this well-known extinct (1991) cluster of open pit Mo-Cu-Ag-Au porphyry mines. Specimens of this size and richness are rare. The piece displays well without aid. Collected in 1984. Ex Gary Weaver Collection. Large for a USA specimen!
