Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 3.5 x 2.25 cm
Originally described by Mariano Barcena in 1874. It is one of the finest specimens of livingstonite we've seen!

The back of the specimen is dark gray-black, and ocherous. Occurs in low temperature hydrothermal veins at this locality in Mexico. J. R. Jelks collection label.

An aesthetic imposing plate bladed iridescent metallic Stibnites The
Breiner Mine, Baiutz, Maramures County, Romania
Cabinet, 11.7 x 9.4 x 5.2 cm
An aesthetic, imposing plate of bladed, iridescent metallic Stibnites. The luster is very good, and you can see occasional flashes of blue and gold as the piece is turned in the light. The blades average over 1 cm tall, the longest being about 1.5 cm, with varying widths. These Romanian Stibnites are classic, old European material, not to be compared on the same level to the far-more-common Chinese stuff available today! Aesthetic and quite substantial, considering it is rich and a full cabinet-size specimen.

The blades average over 1 cm tall, with varying widths. Classic, old European classic material, not to be compared on the same keel to the far-more-common Chinese stuff available today!
An exquisite cluster mining 3 4 years ago acknowledgements produced
Wuling Antimony Mine, Wuning Co., Jiujiang Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
Large Cabinet, 21.2 x 11.5 x 6.2 cm
An exquisite cluster from mining about 3-4 years ago that have by all acknowledgements produced the finest stibnites in the world since the ancient Japanese finds, now long gone. These brilliantly metallic crystals are so sharp and lustrous, they look machined. This particular specimen is one of the more robust clusters I have seen, with broad, fat crystals to 1 inch wide, in an elegant spray. It has the most trivial damage possible for such a large and exposed piece, and none of any significance. I looked through thousands of these, much of the find, and this was one of my favorite picks at ANY price and size range. Also, most of these are too large, if they are of any quality. This one is an excellent size for most collections, not too large, not too spindly-looking.
