Murray Mine Stibnites

Welcome to my gallery of stibnite specimens from the famous Murray mine, located in the Independence Mountains, Elko County, Nevada. From 1998-2001, this mine encountered pockets containing the finest and largest stibnite prisms from North America. Since then, no more quality specimens have been encountered. My supply of these is sporadic, and I am always looking for more quality specimens. Enjoy my selection!  SCOTT
