# TEL-6, $60.00 Sold!
Dims: 0.99x0.71x0.70" (2.52x1.80x1.78cm) .... Wt: 0.23oz (6.4g) .... Loc: Faczebaya, Romania
The telurium specimen is from the type locality. The crystals are embedded in one face of the host rock as hundreds of tiny metallic specs. Under a loupe, some resolve into tiny needles, but I cannot determine if this is a natural crystal form or simply vein growth into host cavities. Without using a loupe, the telurium is barely visible as tiny metallic glints, but with a loupe the hundreds of tiny specs are apparent.
# TEL-5, $72.00 Sold!
Dims: 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.5" (5.5 x 5.0 x 3.9 cm) .... Wt: 4.3 oz. (122 g) .... Loc: Mina la Bombollite, Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico
A vein of shapeless native Tellurium is runs through the quarztite host of this hand specimen. The metal shows no crystal form and has the classic silvery gray-white color and bright metallic luster of the metal. The host appears to be made up of both quartzite and microcrystalline quartz, and contains a few tiny druses.
# TEL-4, $45.00 Sold!
Dims: 1.7 x 1.3 x 0.9" (4.4 x 3.4 x 2.4 cm) .... Wt: 1.6 oz. (45 g) .... Loc: Mina la Bombollite, Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico
A few small patches of native Tellurium rest on the quartzite base of this hand specimen. This metal shows no evidence of crystal form and has the classic silvery-white color and metallic luster of is specie. It is surrounded by patches of powdery, yellow tellurite, a simple oxide. Collected by M. Rheinlander in March, 1995.
# TEL-3, $55.00 Sold!
Dims: 2.0 x 1.2 x 0.9" (5.1 x 3.0 x 2.3 cm) .... Wt: 1.10 oz. (31.3 g) .... Loc: Mina la Bombollite, Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico
This specimen consists of a dull, pale brown host rock through which extend several veins of bright, silvery Tellurium. The metal shows no appreciable crystal form: just its silvery-gray color and bright metallic luster. There is also one miniscule hollow on its surface out of which extend several very tiny, yellow tellurite needles. It was collected by Mathias Rheinlander in March of 1995.
