Description

A very old specimen of stibnite in quartz form the Super Classic Graf Jost-Christian Mine, the type locality for zinkenite. I have not analized the specimen, so it could even be zinkenite. Some geodes are also present with free standing crystals.

From an old german collection, obtained by Belgian collector Gabriel Fauvart in 1949.
