2" Antimonite (Stibnite) Crystal Cluster - Romania

 

This is a cluster of antimonite (also known as stibnite) crystals from Maramures, Romania. The specimen is in overall good shape and has great metallic luster. It comes with a display case for presentation.

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.
