Thumbnail, 1.5 x 1.0 x 0.4 cm
The Moctezuma mine is the type locality for over 1/3 of the species found there. This Gold Tellurium mine in northwest Mexico was the site of the discovery of Poughite, named after the beloved mineralogist Fred Pough. This species is only found at a handful of world localities, and truly to own a piece of this classic material from the type locality is a real treat. Ex. Kosnar Collection.
