JC10147.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  8 x 12 cm   716g.  $45.00.  This one was a vein of calcite with massive stibnite on each side.  When the calcite was etched away, the stibnite shows a bunch of somewhat acicular, almost jackstraw type arrangement of small crystals across the entire face.    The specimen here is solid stibnite, with these crystals on the front face.

JC10148.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  8 x 10 cm   244g.  $30.00.  This piece was from a calcite/stibnite vein, where the stibnite is crystallized all through the calcite.  When the calcite was partially etched away, there are these small, acicular stibnite crystals embedded in the calcite.   Stibnites on this one have decent metallic luster.

JC10151.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  6 x 6.5 cm   183g.  $45.00.  A mass of acicular crystals with metallic luster, moderately bright.  The crystals are slim and fragile and not well terminated.

JC10152.   Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  5 x 8 cm   152g.  $45.00.  A mass of acicular crystals with metallic luster, moderately bright.  The crystals are slim and fragile and not well terminated.   From the same vein as JC10151.

JC10154.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  4.5 x 5 cm  51g.  $25.00.  Small, brilliant, acicular, almost hair like crystals.  This was a vein of calcite/stibnite, and as the calcite was etched away, it exposed these bright little crystals.    Some calcite is still present as the matrix.

JC10155.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.   3 x 4.5 cm   73g.  $30.00.  A little knob of calcite/stibnite.  When the calcite was etched away it exposed these brilliant, acicular crystals.

JC10157.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  5 x 9 cm  170g.  $45.00.  A vein of calcite/stibnite with coarser crystals.  The crystals are in sprays, and not terminated.  A bit of brown matrix is on the back.   Some calcite was left to hold the piece together.    RESERVED

JC10159.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  3.5 x 6 cm   25g.  $30.00.  A gob of calcite with stibnite embedded in the calcite.  The calcite has been partially etched away to show the stibnite crystals.   The crystals are small, but mostly terminated on this piece.  
JC10161.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  3 x 6 x 9 cm   195g.  $40.00.  A vein of nearly solid stibnite encased in calcite.  When the calcite was etched away, it exposed these somewhat hairlike, acicular crystals.

JC10162.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  5.5 x 7 cm   144g.  $30.00.  Stouter, submetallic luster crystals that were embedded in a calcite vein.   Crystal faces are not smooth, they are slightly pitted looking.  None are terminated.  One crystal in the center is bent.

JC10164.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  5 x 6 cm  116g.  $30.00.  A group of crystals that are sheared off where they were in contact with the vein wall.  Nice luster to the exposed sides of the crystals.  None are terminated.   Some calcite is still present to hold the piece together.  
JC10164.  Back side.   The brown color is much more subdued in real life...the camera made it a bit brighter than reality.  
JC10179.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.    2 x 4 cm  18g.  $20.00.  A little spray of bright, non terminated crystals with no matrix.  
JC10181.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  2.5 x 5 cm   21g  $20.00  A little spray of bright, non terminated crystals with no matrix.

JC10376.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  4 x 7 cm   105g  $30.00.  Several non terminated crystals etched out of a gob of calcite.    Sub metallic luster, that has a bit of oxidation on the faces.  Some of the brighter, metallic luster is partially exposed on some of the crystals.    A bit of calcite is still in the matrix.

JC10377.  Stibnite.  White Caps mine, Manhattan, Manhattan district, Toquima range, Nye county, Nevada.  6 x 7 cm   251g.  $20.00  A mass of submetallic fan like crystal sprays in massive stibnite.  The specimen was enclosed in calcite and has been etched out, exposing the somewhat raggedy looking crystals.
