Stand-up crystals make up the entirety of this exquisite specimen of Chinese stibnite.  The crystals are up to 2" long, and they occur in fan-like groups that slant out from a center to create a slightly radiating design.  The color is a metallic silvery gray, and the crystals are lustrous so they gleam brightly in the light.  There is almost no damage, which is remarkable considering the delicacy of the formation and the size of the piece.
