Quartz veins in sandstone, noteworthy for stibnite-included quartz crystals sparsely distributed in some veins. Some quartz crystals also exhibit uncommon s- and x-faces. Many veins are brecciated to varying extents. Stibiconite is present as a weathering-related replacement of stibnite within some quartz crystals, sometimes present along with fresh stibnite.
