Description

Small but lovely little valentinite sprays that are very saturated and contrast nice on the dark grey matrix. From a find about 2 years ago now in the worlds largest antimony deposit. This area is now closed and bewing rehabilitated so this spectacular find might have been a one-off. We will ship it mounted in a perspex box so it will arrive safely. We combine shipping of course.
