Creedite


Creedite is largely a hydrous calcum aluminum fluoride with minor sulfate. Larsen & Wells (1916) named the mineral after its type locality at Creede, Colorado.

These orange crystals clusters of creedite began coming out of Mexico prior to 2000, first as occaisonal oddity, then in larger quantities peaked in production perhaps by 2010-2012. They continue to trickle out, but the mine apparently forbids on mineral collecting. The orange color is distinctive and characteristic of the locality. This is a radiating group of crystals, with one crystal protruding up to 1.3 cm from the group. Nice!
