Valentinite crystals on Stibiconite ps after Stibnite
stock #18-AX-15-290-C003

Hunan Province, China
7.5 x 3.8 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Dec 2018

Sharp, clear prismatic crystals of Valentinite scattered on and esthetic spray of Stibiconite. The Stibiconite has fully replaced the original Stibnite but the form is perfectly preserved. Despite the delicate nature of this specie, this specimen is in excellent condition, complete and undamaged. The Stibnites of Xikhuangshan are world famed, but the less well known, alteration species (like Valentinite) are also world class. This piece is ex Shields Flynn collection and looks good from every angle.
