Bambolla Mine, Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico (TYPE LOCALITY)
Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 4.7 x 2.0 cm
One of the surprises of 2007 for rarities was the reworking of the famous old Bambolla mine in the Moctezuma tellurium complex for specimens, by several European-led collecting teams. Many specimens were then sold at Munich 2008 and this year in Tucson. This is a very rich specimen with microcrystalline yellow poughite and perhaps other telluride minerals as well. Although more colorful on front, there is poughite on both sides of the specimen, and it can be broken up easily into many study or trading samples. very RARE in such quality! (TYPE LOCALITY)
