As just a single crystal, this is a great Chinese stibnite (almost 30 cm long!), but the attached "sidecar crystal" really gives it some character and projects off the main crystal at an aesthetic and eye-catching angle. A beautiful specimen of lustrous, aesthetic stibnite crystals from Shaft 3 of the Wuning Mine in Jiangxi, China. These crystals set the world standard for stibnite when they were found around the year 2000, and since then no major pockets have been encountered at the Wuning mine. This piece is in fine condition, without the rubbing or "bite marks" many of these unfortunately suffered during pocket removal. Comes with a custom Sunnywood acrylic base for display. A Chinese classic!
