Mex031 - Creedite - West Camp, Santa Eulalia, Mun. de Aquiles Serdán, Chihuahua, Mexico

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 is an attractive and interesting matrix specimen of creedite. A spray of violet crystals to about 1 cm is situated on a small ledge. The matrix shows the structure of the vein, with massive quartz at the bottom and a crystalline pyrite-laden vein above. There are also some small creedite and quartz crystals in the front vein. They are covered by a red microcrystalline mineral, possibly hematite. On the reverse, there are quite a few crude creedite crystals lying on the matrix. 5.0 x 3.8 x 2.0 cm.
