||Stibnite with Fluorite coating
Lame (Lamo) Zn-CU deposit, Dachang, Nandan, Hechi Prefecture
8.2 x 7.3 CM (cabinet)
Light purple fluorite in complex modified crystals coating Stibnite epitaxially. This specimen is from a one time find at the Dachang mine in Nandan in 2002. We were fortunate to recently find this piece in our storage the very last of the lot we sold years ago. Nice color and form, there is some bruising but most of the fluorite is quite pristine, most of the stibnites are terminated and some show additional alterations. This should be of real interest in any good Fluorite or Stibnite suite, or for a Chinese mineral enthusiast.
