Calcite with Stibnite inclusions
Xikuangshan Sb Deposit, Lengshuijiang Co., Loudi Pref.
Hunan Province, China
8.2 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $950


A top quality example from a small recent (2008) find of rhombohedral calcites included by lustrous stibnite. A few of these were sold in Munich last year but nearly all had damage. We were fortunate to obtain at the source a few fine, esthetic and quite pristine pieces. There have been no more since. These are far more delicate and rare that the material found at Nandan in 1998, I expect these will also become modern classics and quite sought after. The glassy, tranlucent to transparent rhomb is 5.5 CM wide and has no eye visible damage. Magnification shows only a few rough spots on edges. The stibnites are clearly visible inside the calcite. Esthetic and displayable from several angles.
