Lustrous, metallic-gray stibnite blades form a striking and aesthetic specimen from an extinct and very less well-known California antimony-mining locale - the Rip Van Winkle Claim in San Benito County. EXTREMELY RARE on the market. Ex Jaime Bird Collection and the label with the piece has a 1973 date on it.
