Native Tellurium Crystals With Quartz
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 5.1 x 1.3 cm
Emperor Mine, Vatukoula, Viti Levu, Fiji
On the nice, crystallized quartz of the display face are two larger crystals which are almost 2 mm in size, bright and sharp, and possibly twinned. This is a display-sized specimen rich with perhaps 20 sub-mm crystals that are smaller, but still eye visible and very sparkly so the appearance of the piece as a whole is quite rich, scattered all over it. The back is cut and semi-polished, revealing rich and attractive veins of tellurium
