Description

Very aesthetic hedgehog-shaped grouping of prismatic terminated thick lustrous stibnite crystals. The crystals show a pronounced elongated structure on the surfaces. This gives the specimen a living character. It was collected and bought in the early 70s (with old collection card)! Undamaged, only a small part on the backside was extracted from the rock!
