Item Description

A striking, highly lustrous, sharply striated, DOUBLY TERMINATED, floater stibnite "sword" or "wand" from recent finds at the well-known Wuling Mine of China. Floater stibnite crystals of this LARGE CABINET size and quality are UNCOMMON and highly desirable from Wuling. The terminations are sharp and tapering and this fine crystal has only a trivial amount of edgewear. There is even a kink in the crystal near one termination. Ex Marty Zinn Collection # 1842. This crystal would have been about $2500, when they first came out! DT crystals were that rare in this size. As I recall, it did have a $2500 price tag on it with the original Zinn collection evaluation
