Description

Peculiar cluster of stibnite fully coated by a thick layer of needle jamesonite. Both species appear very fresh, with good grey color and metallic lustre. Stibnite is mostly terminated, especially the inner aggregates, and this adds to the aesthetic of the specimen.

Quite unusual association. From the former stock of the late renowned Italian collector and dealer Bruno Cerato. The indicated weight includes the plastic box, as the specimen is well fixed with blue tack.
