creedite mineral  
CREEDITE. Santa Eulalia, Mun. de Aquiles Serdán, Chihuahua, Mexico. So many minerals are often first researched, analyzed and described from material that turns out later to be of less than stellar quality. So it was with Creedite, first noted in 1916 from a Fluorite mine near Creede, Colorado. Since 1916, several other localities have been found, some with attractive and colorful examples. The various mines around Santa Eulalia in Chihuahua, Mexico, occasionally come up with specimens like this one: a gently rounded mass of medium purple crystals of excellent luster. There are single crystals up to ½ inch (1.25 cm), and it is in pristine condition. Provenance: Hoppel Catalog # D1510. (Item 6158)
