Product Description

For sale is a fine double terminated stibnite crystal from Hillgrove mine, Hillgrove, NSW. This mine has very recently closed and is not likely to ever open again, as soon as the present leases run out the government will never lease that very steep land out again! This crystal (actually two crystal, as there is a second double terminated one running horizontal, as can be seen in the pics) is highly lusterous, not easy to capture in pics, and the rear has some classic Hillgrove small quartz association. We obtained this beautiful stibnite crystal from the collection of the late mine geo Roland Hill.  Hillgrove is undoubtedly the source of Australia’s finest stibnite specimens!
