stibnite crystal from China-2
bent crystal
Stibnite is Sb2S3
Stibnite is antimony sulfide.  It is distinguished both by gray metallic color and by its
mineral habit of form slender prismatic crystals that are bent.  Stibnite is the primary
ore of antimony.  However, fine crystals of stibnite are worth much more than their
antimony content.  This crystal is about 15 centimeters long.
