Description

Another interesting stibnite sample from a seldom offered locality. Several 'nests' of glossy stibnite crystals with yellowish cervantite (according to Lhrieder label). Cervantite is not listed for the locality. Icould only find stibiconite listed for Krásná Hora, which would make the radial aggregate pictured half a pseudomorph. An interesting old specimen, that should be analyzed.
Comes with Lehrieder's label and an olderone - I'd guess 19th century ...
