Stibnite on a Calcite floater (8,4cm x 5,3cm)
Mario Pauwels collection , Joaquim Callén photo.

Very well balanced single cognac colored Calcite floater with two terminated and penetrating Stibnite needles. The great shape of the calcite and the unique position of both Stibnite needles makes this a highly aësthetic specimen. The specimen was was collected in october 2010 and the 'backside' of this specimen is featured in the "Mineral Up" calendar june 2012. http://www.mindat.org/photo-465564.html
