Hundreds of tiny Creedites rest in hollows in the black base rock of this hand specimen. These crystals do not exceed 0.1" (4 mm) in length and are generally in very good condition - a small number of crystals are exposed and damaged or broken. All appear to show excellent monoclinic bladed form, and have a vitreous luster. They are colorless, as opposed to the pale-pink crystals found in Nevada, U.S.A., and are transparent and very clear. Some extend from a white, massive formation that rests on the base rock- I do not know what this material is.
