Lone Pine Mine, Wilcox District, Catron Co., New Mexico, USA
Miniature, 3.8 x 2.9 x 1.5 cm
Ex. University of Arizona Mineral Museum
A rich, hefty specimen (37 grams) from a classic old mining district for tellurium species. This piece has native tellurium in bright, lamellar crystals in massive matrix, and almost certainly some other rare species could be present as well. From the collection of the University of Arizona Museum, Ex. Hatcher collection (donated sometime long ago as the very old UA label number is #1232). Joe Budd photos
