stilbite is the name of a series of tectosilicate minerals of the zeolite group. prior to 1997, stilbite was recognized as a mineral species, but a reclassification in 1997 by the international mineralogical association changed it to a series name, with the mineral species being named: . stilbite-ca; stilbite-na; stilbite-ca, by far the more common of the two, is a hydrous calcium sodium and .
in geology, the mineral stibnite, sb 2 s 3, is sometimes called antimonite. antimonites can be compared to antimonates, which contain antimony in the 5 oxidation state. references this inorganic compound–related article is a stub. you can help wikipedia by expanding .
