Stibnite, Baiutz Mine attr., Maramures, Romania, ex. Louis Lafayette Collection #875, Medium Cabinet 7.5 x 10.0 x 14.0 cm, $2500. Online Jan. 28


  • $ 2,50000

A divergent group of gun metal gray prismatic stibnite to 3 cm.  Well crystalized to all sides.  A fantastic stibnite from this location.  Even when the mines were running this would have been considered a stellar example.  It is unknown when Mr. Lafayette acquired this piece but his tag indicates he paid $350 - no doubt a high price at the time. A couple of very minor edge rubs but overall in very excellent condition.  A great piece.
