There is no host rock of any sort on this specimen. it looks simply like an explosion frozen in metallic rock, with hundreds upon hundreds of needlelike Stibnite crystals stabbing outward from a central point. Some of the larger crystals have tiny needles growing off of their prism faces. They all have the gray color and metallic luster that is common in Stibnite, and though a few dozen of the crystals show noticeable damage, there are so many of them here that the specimen is still in very good condition. It is, of course, very delicate and should be handled with great care. I don't know how common the Romanian locality is, but I don't hear of very many minerals that come from there.
