Large Cabinet, 23.0 x 16.3 x 10.0 cm
Kisbanya, Romania
Ex. Andrew Carnegie
A huge specimen of impressive, classically-formed stibnite spears to 5 cm rising from solid stibnite matrix. Considering its size and age, it has remarkably little damage (mostly peripheral) and displays very nicely even by our spoiled modern standards now that China is in the market. For Romania, it is REALLY good, though. One can easily imagine that, in Carnegie's time, collectors oohed and aaahed over such a large stibnite specimen as they only came from Japan and Romania.
