This stibnite specimen from China's Wuning mine is a simply stunning work of natural art. The sort of mineral specimen that would stop even a non-collector in their tracks across the room, this large group of sword-like, lustrous crystal features stibnite "blades" to almost 30 cm, in a highly-aesthetic cluster if interpenetrating crystals. Stibnite crystals of this magnitude have only been found at the Wuning mine once, in a major find approximately 15 years ago now. This specimen is noteworthy not only for the size of its crystals but their lack of damage (rare for this soft mineral) and excellent luster and striations. Superb! Ex.
