This is a different stibnite habit than one usually finds. Instead of a spray of distinctive metallic silver needles, this specimen consists of thin parallel blades with a coating of acicular crystals, all held together with some white translucent crystals that share the same orientation. It almost looks like a stallactitic form, although with very tiny features. Adding to the specimen's appeal is that the stibnite has been tarnished blue, and in bright light (such as sunlight) it sparkles extremely well, not only from simple reflectio, but also blue and other colors. This is a most unusual stibnite specimen.
