Comment: Elsewhere in this set of auctions we are featuring a specimen from this same find, but of completely reversed character. Here, the stibnite (bladed) dominates as a large field of shiny crystals, and there is a small calcite (but a real JEWEL-like one), measuring 2 cm. (It has a small natural contact on one corner.) ex. M.L. Countiss collection.

Minerals: Calcite (CaCO3) Stibnite (Sb2S3)
