ID: CC8086
A classic single crystal of Stibnite from the famous Ichinokawa mine on Shikoku Island, Japan.  This is a fine example displaying all the attributes of the amazing Stibnite specimens from this old mine.  Forming a fine chisel-like termination, the crystal measures to over 10 cm long with a flattened bladed habit, with deep striations parallel to its length and a slight yet very noticeable bend.  The Stibnite is a steely gunmetal silver-grey with a bright metallic lustre and an occasional patina of iridescent colours in shades of green, blue, yellow and pink which on the termination forms swirling mixtures of colours like a film of oil on water.  This magnificent cabinet specimen is mounted vertically on a small square acrylic base and comes with three old labels, one of which has a beautifully sketched crystallographic diagram of this crystal with elegantly written annotations.
