4.15" Metallic Stibnite Cluster - China

This is a cluster of Stibnite crystals from the famous Wuling Mine, China. The specimen is in overall good shape, has great metallic luster, fine striations, and some small chisel terminations.

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. Stibnite (antimony) can be harmful if inhaled or swallowed, so while a crystal sitting on your shelf doesn't pose any real health risk, please don't lick the stibnites.
