Fluorite on Stibnite
Dushan Mine, Guizhou, China
Cabinet, 10.6 x 9.1 x 8.4 cm
Ex. Dr. Ed David
A very dramatic specimen that is more 3-dimensional and more covered in fluorite than most such pieces, from finds in 2004-2005. The piece is complete on 3 sides, contacted in back. It features robust stibnite crystals as well as thinner ones, in cluster aggregate, all covered by a drapery of translucent fluorite. One of the best I have seen from China, and rivalling the old 1980s Thai material of similar aspect!
