Valentinite is an uncommon antimony oxide. One would usually not expect a gray metal to form such fine, starburst-like, radial clusters of highly lustrous, pearlescent, prismatic crystals richly distributed on all sides of the matrix. This superb and rich specimen is from an uncommon locale - the Sanza Mine in Algeria. Weighs 167 grams. Old material.
