The Lac Nicolet Antimony mine in Quebec, Canada is a well-known and classic locale for Antimony minerals, including the rare species kermesite. This is a very fine kermesite specimen for this locality, and features abundant acicular tufts of kermesite crystals associated with massive Senarmontite and Valentinite. Large, rich specimens such as this are virtually unobtainable from Lac Nicolet today. This classic old piece has a great pedigree as well, hailing from the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences collection.
