A crust of intergrown and clustered Creedite prisms rests on the pale brown base of this cabinet specimen. These crystals are generally in good condition, showing moderate damage, and reach lengths of 0.3" (8 mm). All have excellent monoclinic form and show the classic pale violet color and vitreous luster. All are likewise transparent and quite clear. A large amount of quartz and a small amount of pyrite make up part of the base rock, which is affixed to an acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
