Cabinet, 11.6 x 7.0 x 4.0 cm
Ex. Tom Hall

Iconic in every way, this wonderful, cabinet-sized Stibnite is from the famous 2003 find at Wuning Mine. Each and every bladed crystal is splendent, beautifully striated, well terminated, and they all have a brilliant, metallic luster. There is even some subtle bending in some of the crystals, which harkens back to the great Japanese finds at Ichinokawa. Good company to be in, for sure. This cluster is both elegant and robust, with about everything you could ask for in a top-notch Stibnite. Superb aesthetics, and even better in person. This is considered to be the best quality pocket of stibnite ever found and was the first professionally collected full stibnite pocket in China. I seek them out when I can repurchase them from that early era of Chinese exports.
