Item Description

Matrix orange creedite balls are extremely rare and desirable from the recent finds at Mina Navidad. A beautiful, complete all-around, 5.5 cm ball is aesthetically perched on a wedge of matrix. This is excellent piece is from the more recent finds, with larger crystals. The gemmy and lustrous, burnt-orange spikes reach 1.6 cm. Very nearly pristine and expertly collected, with only a couple of barely noticeable broken crystals. Ex Brent Lockhart Collection; and comes with a custom-made and engraved lucite base valued at $100 for free. This is a particularly nice specimen from the finds of a few years ago, now finished and done. The entry adit has collapsed there.
