Rodalquilarite on Alunite
Miniature, 5.1 x 3.7 x 1.1 cm
Wendy pit, Tambo Mine, El Indio deposit, Coquimbo Province, Chile
This is the best specimen of the lot. It features rich sprays of crystals in an alunite rind, with one absolutely giant xl for the species at nearly 5 mm in size. The crystals are gemmy, sharp, and ELECTRIC GREEN in color. The piece overall is REALLY striking and of high display quality for the species. I have seen handfuls of these over the years, but never for sale a specimen of this rare tellurite species worth noting this hyperbolically. BETTER In PERSON!
