This bright specimen consists of what look like a few partial, intersecting crystals of native Antimony. However, I have been told that actual Antimony crystals are extremely rare, and that this specimen is likely a piece of massive Antimony that has undergone extensive cleavage. It has a very white, silvery coloration and one of the brightest metallic lusters that I have seen in any natural material. It is, of course, opaque, and shows many parallel growth striations and patterns on its surfaces. All of its surfaces are flat and appear to correspond to a crystal form, though a definite trigonal form cannot be determined.
