3.4" Metallic Stibnite Crystal Cluster - Peru

This is a 3.4" wide, shiny spray of slender, metallic stibnite crystals. It was collected from the Lima Department of Peru, likely coming from the Animón Mine. Most of the crystals are damaged, with only a couple terminations remaining intact.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

Stibnite is a lead-gray mineral, usually occurring as striated prismatic crystals, that are made up of antimony sulfide and is the main ore of antimony. It often forms groups of long, shiny metallic crystals radiating out at different angles, which look like something out of a sci-fi movie.

Toxicity Warning: Stibnite (antimony) is toxic and can be harmful if inhaled or swallowed. Most of the risk is long-term, chronic exposure to its dust. While a crystal sitting on your shelf doesn't pose a health risk you should wash your hands after handling, keep out of reach of children and please don't lick the stibnites.
