Dimensions: 26.5 x 10.5 x 2.5 cm

A wonderfully aesthetic cluster of intergrown Stibnite crystals to 26.5 cm long from the major find ~10 years ago at the Wuning Mine in Jiujiang Province, China. Stibnite crystals from this find have set the global benchmark for this species, even surpassing the historical Japanese stibnites seen in many old museum collections. This specimen has great display aesthetics and is in fine condition, which was unusual for clusters in this size range. The luster of a bright metallic steel color and the "crossed hands" intergrowth of the two sprays of crystals makes for a striking presentation.
