Stibnite Metaphysical Properties
Stibnite is a unique mineral that forms in brilliant silver blades. It is a mineral filled with potential energy. Elementally, it is a crystal of fire, it's energy is one that inspires action and sparks or rekindles passions. Thought to be a stone of change, Stibnite is often used when one is working to make a significant change in themselves or their circumstances. Stibnite also has an association with luck and chance. It is said to increase co-incidence or perhaps heightens our awareness of such synchronicity.
Stibnite is an ore of Antimony. Please note that you should wash your hands after handling this piece, but you CAN handle it. Stibnite has a reputation for being 'extremely toxic' but as long as you don't eat it, you will be fine (hand model shown is alive and well). Antimony is toxic to humans, and some of this is transferred to Stibnite. But, you would have to consume Stibnite to have any consequence. With that said, don't let children handle this specimen. Keep it in a safe place when not in use.
