OKH-572

OKH-572      Stibnite    Herja, Romania.  Ex.  Paul and Dawne Dunning Collection.  I do not consider these specimens to be unusual but this one is.  It is composed of a 2 .4 centimeter spray of bright silver colored stibnite that is tipped on edge and embedded in an unusual matrix of rich brown color.  This matrix appears to be made of quartz pseudomorphs, possibly after barite.  No damage.  It is interesting and attractive due to the color and luster contracts.  The entire piece measures 6.3 x 5.7 x 2.8 cm.  Very nice on several levels.  $125
