Bambolla Mine, Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.0 x 1.3 cm
A single, gorgeously formed, terminated, brightly colored tellurite crystal perched in a protected vug, lined with drusy quartz - a beautiful specimen that will make for incredible microphotography for the species! The crystal is approx 5-6 mm long. 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.
