A classic, old-time, well-terminated stibnite crystal from the renowned Ichinokawa Mine of Japan. The complete all-around, metallic-bright crystal is nicely striated. Primary production from this famous locale was over by 1900. These stibnites were considered the world standard, until the recent Chinese finds.
