Stibnite -delicate
stock #20.1-178
Xikuangshan Sb Deposit, Lengshuijiang Co., Loudi Pref.
Hunan Province, China
6.4 x 4.8 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $250
Spring 2020

Slender bright metallic crystals of Stibnite radiating in interlocking clusters with no matrix. This habit was from a major find in 2009 at Xikhuahshan, and shows well the "fractal" or multi-generational crystalization. On this piece the main radiating sprays are the base for much smaller needle crystals some of which are the base for even smaller crystals. The crystals have a bright metallic luster on several sides, and the specimen display well from many angles. This form at first glance may look a bit like some of the old Stibnite finds in Felsobanya, Romania, but a closer look shows that this is a unique habit, different from any others we have seen. Despite the delicacy his can be shipped safely but is not recommended for export due to the potential for customs inspections which is not usually as gentle as we would like.
Stibnite
stock #9.1-247
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
6.7 x 5.2 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Spring 2020

An esthetic classic Romanian Stibnite crystal cluster with colorful patina on several crystals. This is a radiating group of metallic crystals that is damage free and looks good on all sides. This is an older specimen (30 years or more) from the Cavnic mines that have been closed for a few years. These older stibnites are unique in their habit and look and are clearly recognizable being unlike those from other localities.
Stibnite and Calcite
stock #AX-12-106
Xikuangshan Sb Deposit, Lengshuijiang Co., Loudi Pref.
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 #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.
HOLD Cassiterite & Stibnite (Bismuthinite?) on Quartz (rare association)
stock #HOLD AX-15-279
Amo Mine, Ximeng
Yunnan Province, China
5.2 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Winter 2016-17

A bizarre 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 #AX-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 Romanian 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 perfectionist 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 Province, China
6.9 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $150


An 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 different from other such combos I have seen.
