Excellent large group of lustrous black Bismuthinite crystals from Bolivia, from the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences collection, likely obtained during one of the famous "Vaux Expeditions" by Foshag, Keely, Bandy and other in the 1920's and 30's. A very fine and historically significant example of this unusual Bismuth sulfide species from a classic locale. ex-Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences
