Mina Navidad, Abasolo, Rodeo
5.2 x 3.2 x 3.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
Radiating cluster of very distinct Creedite crystals that are free standing, reaching nearly 3 CM tall. Aside from the much larger than usual crystals, this has very rich color, some transparency and fine luster. Mina Navidad has been the source of nearly all good orange Creedites, a mineral usually colorless or brown (rarely purple) and usually in much smaller crystals. This is far above average miniature, excellent for the size and especially esthetic.
Rutilated Quartz and Hematite
3.8 x 2.4 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
A cute toenail sized rutilated Quartz that sits on bladed Hematite crystals that are also Rutilated. The Rutile hairs are bright golden color and very sharp, clearly seen both inside and out of the Quartz. Rutile on Hematite and Rutile inside Quartz are both often available, but it is quite uncommon to see both together like this.
