Stutzite With Native Tellurium
La Bambolla Mine, Mactezuma Mine, Sonoma, Mexico
Miniature, 3.7 x 3.3 x 1.7 cm
A rare silver telluride! This specimen is composed of a really rich coating of surface-laying, splendent, metallic-gray crystals of stutzite upon the typical Moctezuma mine matrix enriched in native tellurium. Additionally, there may be tetradymite present as well: three very rare species, all having tellurium in their formula.
