Item Description

From the find that produced the largest crystals of Stibnite seen in the modern era of mineral collecting. This large cabinet size piece is a bright, intense metallic silver color, prismatic crystal of Stibnite with a beautiful termination. It looks like a glorious Stibnite "sword". The crystal is in great shape overall, with a bit of roughness in spots, but still very attractive for the species. You just don't see crystals of this size on the market as it seems that Wuling is not producing them at at this time. Valued at $750.
