Stibnite and Calcite
stock #18-AX-12-106
Xikhuahshan Antimony mine
Hunan Province, China
4.3 x 3.4 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $80
Late Summer 2018

A delicate and complex miniature specimen of transparent, zoned Calcite scalenohedra mixed with metallic Stibnites. In fine condition this is a very three dimensional piece. From the prolific finds of 2008-9, an affordable Calcite/Stibnite combo that is complex and very detailed.
Stibnite - classic Japanese locale
stock #18.AX-10-681
Ichinokawa, Saijo , Ehime Prefecture
Shikoku Island, Japan
6.4 x 3.1 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Worldwide mix summer

A fat, gun-metal silver blue compound crystal from the very old find at Iyo. This was a gift to the collector Wallace Gould Levison of New York City in 1915. His label does not survive but the gift is recorded in his ledger. This crystal is very complex and recrystalized, it looks at quick glance like a badly broken piece but on inspection the termination is complete and most of the rough faces are in fact fully crystalized. There is only one area of da, mage and that is limited to the backside. The Patina is the perfect, classic look of a vintage Japanese Stibnite and the complex form is oddly attractive too.
Stibnite- tabular crystals
stock #7.AE-290B
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
7.6 x 6.2 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Spring update

Choice old Cavnic Stibnite with the rare type of flattened crystals. Sharp and clean, fine metallic luster and very three dimensional. These mines are closed and specimens of this quality are not often available. Even more impressive in person.
Cassiterite & Stibnite (Bismuthinite?) on Quartz (rare association)
stock #ALEC-15-279
Amo Mine, Ximeng
Yunnan, China
5.2 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Winter 2016-17

A bizzare association, well formed slightly translucent Cassiterites sitting on Quartz with a crude 5 CM Stibnite crystal along one edge. The question was recently asked if this is Stibnite or Bismuthinite, and we have not yet made an analysis. The Cassiterites have good luster and form, very three dimensional. Ex Shields Flynn collection, via Bert Ottens, I have never seen another of these. There is a matrix repair that is not visible.
Stibnite -Flattened prismatic crystals with Barite, Quartz
stock #Alec- 16-162
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
8.8 x7.7 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nicely composed, lustrous and sharp Roumanian specimen from the classic Cavnic mines. Since this locality closed the unique habits of Cavnic Stibnites have become sought after. This is in very good condition overall, but for a perfectionsist this is not perfect. Edge damage where this was removed is noted,magnification reveals more tiny chips and contacts elsewhere but most are less than a mm in size. Some rough looking terminations are not damaged but are the more hackly type nestled in with the prismatic ones. The main areas are mostly undamaged, and the most prominent crystals are fine. This displays well the rare flat-habit metallic Stibnites in an esthetic array on contrasting matrix. Affordable with nice form and reasonable shape for and older, delicate mineral.
Calcite on Sibnite
stock #6.2-902
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
6.9 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $150


Aa attractive and rather unusual habit of Calcite on Stibnite from the less well known locality of Nandan. The main Calcite is a sharp scalenohedron 3.5 CM long that seems to be heavily included by stibnite giving it a dark, cloudy interior. The overall composition and esthetics are very good, there is nice contrast with the metallic stibnite crystals. Not typical, this is quite differenet from other such combos I have seen.
Stibnite
stock #A7-531-698
Grosseto Province
Tuscany, Italy
5 x 4.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $260


A nice Italian Stibnite from Grosseto, with a great gunmetal silver luster. Crystals up to 3 CM long are in sprays on a dark sulfide matrix. Our labels from previous collections do not list the mine but this is a very good match for the Pereta mine in Scansano. Mostly undamaged showing a variety of terminations, some minor damage is noted but not easily noticed. Ex Larry White collection 1960's vintage but likely collected long before then. This is much nicer in person
Stibnite on (and in) Fluorite Cubes
stock #6.2-333
Dehegou Mine, (Zhangergou, Lushi) Lushi County
Henan, China
9 x 8.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Tucson group

The relatively rare pyramidal or "4 sided pointed chisel tip" termination is well displayed on this stibnite and the matrix is almost pure cubic Fluorite included by stibnite. Some stibnites display a brassy and blue irridescent alterations. The largest crystals are perfect but there is minor damage elsewhere and a broken stib near the center that can be seen depending on the angle of display. That said it is still very displayable, esthetic and shows a rarer crystal form and a great association.
