A druse if many tiny Creedite prisms rests on the white quartz base of this large hand specimen. These crystals are in excellent condition, showing no damage, and appear to have excellent monoclinic bladed form, though they are so intergrown as to appear specular in a few areas. All have the standard lavender coloration and a bright pearly luster, and individual crystals are transparent and moderately clear- those that are "specular" are a deeper violet in color and are essentially translucent. The quartz base on which they rest contains some pyrite or other metallic sulfide in one area.
