Item Description

As with the pink fluorites from the same locality, until these creedites were discovered, good crystallized specimens were exceedingly rare and expensive from ANY locality. Suddenly, you could own a really fine creedite without selling your house to get it. Then, about a year ago, we heard that the mining was FINISHED, apparently for good. So if you do not have one, well, here is another chance. We were lucky enough to put some aside before the mining stopped. This is a large specimen of intergrown balls, covered with gemmy orange creedite crystals! This showy piece has very few broken crystals, as you can see and is nearly a floater, with only a few small points of contacting. It is artistically and for color one of the better ones we have auctioned. Valued $900-ish
