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.
Very nice small cabinet specimen of lavender creedite to 1.8 cm. Most of the crystals are sharply terminated and range from a medium lavender to almost colorless at the tips. There are a few cleaved crystal at the periphery (particularly at the bottom and left side) but the crystals in the main display area are fine. What appears to be damage in the center is actually a patch of natural roughness and iridescent sulphide crystals. 7.3 x 5.2 x 3.7 cm.
