Description

Piece of a quartz vein hosting a little vug with small lustrous acicular stibnite. On the backside you'll find a clearly visible, 4 mm sized gold bleb frozen in the quartz. Further amorphous stibnite is also present.

I was not able to verify a locality "Mina Tapota", therefore I guess it was a transcription error - the Tapada mine in the Porto (Oporto) District is described as an ancient Antimony mine, mining started in 1880. Gold is also described for that mine.

A rare and interesting combination specimen.
