At the InnSuites Hotel, John and Maryann Fender had a nice lot of creedites from the classic Mexican find. These specimens were in the inventory of Consie Prince, a long-time mineral dealer in Houston. They all featured excellent, large violet crystals. Most indicated a Santo Domingo Mine locality, but I suspect they are actually from the Potosi Mine; I therefore am using the more general West Camp locality. I selected four specimens based on their value and visual interest.
This specimen is quite unusual. It is a half-round spray of creedite crystals (to 1.2 cm) on the back of a doubly-terminated, 2.4 cm quartz crystal. I have never seen a West Camp creedite specimen quite like this one! In fact, at a quick glance, it does look like an amethyst "flower". There is a couple of broken crystal hidden by the quartz, but it displays beautifully as shown and is quite unique. 2.7 x 2.4 x 1.3 cm.
