Miniature, 3.9 x 1.1 x 0.6 cm
Rip Van Winkle Mine (Bishop Mine; French Antimony group; French Ranch), Antimony Peak, Hollister, San Benito Co., California, USA

Lustrous, metallic-gray stibnite blades form a striking and aesthetic specimen from an extinct and very less well-known California antimony-mining locale - the Rip Van Winkle Claim in San Benito County. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection and the label with the piece has a 1973 date on it.
