Collected in 2007, these lilac colored Creedites were one of the few mineral discoveries from the Henderson Mine to actually survive and make their way OUT of the mine. The Henderson Mine is a MASSIVE commercial Molybdenum mining operation that runs 24 hours a day, and there is no time to stop to collect minerals, regardless of quality or quantity. Amazingly enough, a few miners were able to liberate some of these beautiful Creedite specimens, which must have been exposed in an area that was not slated for blasting immediately. Nonetheless, this is a very good representation of this material as it features several translucent, crystallized “balls” of beautiful soft purple Creedite sitting on host rock matrix. It is very difficult to obtain good matrix pieces of this material, especially in cabinet sized specimens. The type locality for Creedite is in Colorado, but those specimens are typically white, and not terribly attractive. Good purple Creedites are few and far between from world localities, and this one would make a great addition to any Colorado collection.
