This rather simple specimen consists of a piece of massive Antimony that is partially coated with a rust-stained crust of what appears to be calcite. The Antimony has a silvery color and a bright metallic luster, and appears to have evidence of cleavage, but no definable crystal form. It is rather heavy for its size. I have not seen a specimen of native Antimony before this one; I believe that it is a rather rare occurrence.
