|Colour:||Light green to white||Hardness:||4|
|Name:||The name reflects its antimony (Latin "stibium") content and similarity to microlite.|
The type sample for stibiomicrolite (Groat et al. 1987) and also the sample of Novák & Černý (1998) are now to be classified as oxystibiomicrolite.
Two compositions by Černý et al. (2004) are oxycalciomicrolite, and one is a calciomicrolite. The stibiomicrolite of Beurlen et al. (2005) is a zero valent dominant member of the microlite group.
