Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 3.2 x 2.2 cm
San Martin Mine, San Martin, Mun. de Sombrerete, Zacatecas, Mexico

Two silvery-bright, radiating sprays of acicular stibnite crystals in a jackstraw pattern form a showy specimen from the famous San Martin Mine, Zacatecas, Mexico. The thin plate of attached matrix is a nice accent. Spanish production from this ancient mine started in 1555, 450 years ago! Ex. Dave Stoudt Collection.
