Fall 22

A super esthetic specimen from a remarkable find almost 15 years ago at Xikuangshan. This has a delicate transparent Calcite crystal perched on edge that is shot through with metallic Stibnite crystals most of which extend outside of the Calcite. This look great on all sides and the Calcite (3.7 CM across) is well-formed, complete and in fine condition. The black sparkling matrix is a very nice contrast to the metallic Stibnite and the Calcite. This specimen was in the collection of Michel Jouty, and is especially well-composed with a fine architecture.

Late Summer 2021

Flower-form Stibnite in a radiating cluster of metallic crystals on a shard of matrix. From the find in Nandan in 2006, this is similar to an older find in Romania but slightly different on close exam. There is minimal matrix here just some shards of white Quartz that set off the darker metallic blades of Stibnite. Overall this has good luster but some of the individual crystals have some tiny pitting which gives a more matte finish. Excellent display impact most crystals are terminated some with prism tips others with a more jagged end. There is some damage seen by loupe exam but overall the condition is very good especially for this delicate mineral. These have not been found for many years, now they are a modern classic.

new year 2021

About 12 years ago an amazing but small find of bladed Stibnite crystals (clusters, fans and flowerlike arrangements) was made in Nandan (China). The find was quickly exhausted and the mines are now all shut down. The habits are similar to an older find in Romania that is also long gone. On close examination these are clearly a bit different. This piece is in remarkable condition, aside from the outer edges it is undamaged. Displays well,the crystals have a bright metallic luster on the flat faces and a dark almost black look on the narrow edges. The blades reach 2.5 CM and are mostly free standing. This is a very choice display grade Stibnite from any place and an a super fine example of this discovery. We can ship this piece with special packaging which will involve a slightly higher cost.

These older stibnites are unique in their habit and look and are clearly recognizable being unlike those from other localities.

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.
