6.8 x 4.7 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
An old specimen from the classic mines of Pribram, densely covered with Valentinite crystals. The Valentinites are of the elongated type with complex cross section. These crystals reach 1 CM and are both free standing and flat laying. There are several complete, undamaged crystals but there are also several with clearly visible damage. While this is not a piece or perfectionsts it is better than typical for this delicate mineral and is a lower cost, classic specimen. Ex Vrazel collection.
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.
