Description: This is a unique specimen with hair-like fibers and highly lustrous Jamesonite crystals. Isolated crystals of Quartz and Covellite are also present.
Jamesonite is one of a few sulfide minerals that form fine acicular crystals that appear as hair-like fibers. The fibers may be so thick as to cover a specimen with hair-like fibers or it may be sparsely dessiminated between other minerals and may be confused with actual hairs. Jamesonite has been called feather ore and grey antimony.
