Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 4.6 x 3.5 cm
Colavi Mine, Machacamarca District (Colavi District), Cornelio Saavedra Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
This is a fine example of the rare antimony oxide, Valentinite. The piece features sharp, lustrous, translucent to gemmy "straw" color, fine quality, tabular crystals of Valentinite measuring up to 6 mm (good size from this mine) on massive Galena. This specimen was mined 6 years ago, and I have not seen any more specimens from this mine since that time. A great opportunity to own a matrix specimen of a very hard to find mineral. Species collectors out there should jump on this one. This is one of the best pieces I've seen from this mine with a great coverage of superb quality crystals on a relatively large overall specimen. 6.2 x 4.6 x 3.5cm
