Manhattan, Nevada stibnites are arguably considered to be the finest US stibnites. This excellent thumbnail consists of sharp stibnite blades. On one side the crystals are highly lustrous, striated and are iridescent, while on the reverse side the blades have a matte finish. And the two major crystals have striking, pointed terminations. Classic, older material. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection.
