Lushi Co., Sanmenxia Prefecture, Henan Province, China
Not since the late 19th century have Stibnite crystals been produced like the Chinese ones from Henan Province. Several mines of government and private ownership have provided outstanding examples of this Antimony mineral. At one foot in height this single 'sword' is above average in size - and truly looks like it would function as one ... for a five year old. It shows the typical blunt termination and except for minor cleavages on the backside is in excellent condition. Luster is brilliantly metallic and there are numerous striations running the length of the crystal. Comes with custom acrylic base.
Overall measurements: 12 x 0.75 x 0.5 inches (30.5 x 1.9 x 1.3 cm).
Provenance: North Star Minerals [Hoppel # D2194]
