||Stibnite on (and in) Fluorite Cubes
Dehegou Mine, (Zhangergou, Lushi) Lushi County
9 x 8.4 CM (cabinet)
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.
