History: Stibnite is sometimes called Antimonite because it’s the most popular source for Antimony. The name Stibnite comes from the Greek word stibi which is from the Latin word stibium and was the old name for Antimony. In Ancient Egypt, they used a Stibnite powder as a medication and in cosmetics. It was known as Khol back then and was used as eye makeup to line the eyes. An alchemist in the 17th century named Eirenaeus Philalethes who was also known as George Starkey, used Stibnite before philosophical mercury, which was a precursor to the Philosopher's Stone. Even though gold and silver were the minerals that brought miners to Idaho, Stibnite was also a heavily mined mineral in the 1940s. The mineral was used in the production of bullets for World War II.

Where it's found: Found in China, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Uzbekistan.

Variations, Rarity and Value: Stibnite is usually grey and silver, a dark metallic gray. It’s a common crystal with a hardness of 2 on the Mohs scale of hardness making it very delicate. The A Grade Stibnite is a silvery black colour with some lustre with a needle formation. The B Grade is a similar colour but will have a lower lustre and will be duller. You can buy pieces of Stibnite to add to your crystal collection, but it’s rarely found in jewelry. Larger pieces are rare, so they are higher in price.

How to use it: Caution: Use Stibnite very carefully because it is very toxic. Always wash your hands after any contact with it. Also be sure not to inhale any of the dust or particles that come off of it. Keep away from pets and children and DO NOT use in elixirs. Best to keep in a case or container. You can keep it in your home as a decorative piece, and the energy will still emanate throughout your home.
