At least 20 Creedite cryastals of impressive size rest on this specimen. They have a prismatic form with a diamond-shaped cross-section and a steeply sloping termination. The largest of these crystals measure 5 x 3 x 2 mm. All are in excellent condition, though tere are some patches on the host rock where clusters have been crushed and broken. They all have a pale pink color, a vitreous luster, and are transparent. They rest on a host rock that looks as if it's made of alternating layers of quartz and some type of feldspar. The specimen is attached to an acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
