Wendy pit, Tambo Mine, El Indio deposit, Coquimbo Province, Chile
Miniature, 3.4 x 2.0 x 2.0 cm
A rich reference specimen with a single large pocket in alunite rind on rock matrix, filled in entirely by Rodalquilarite. crystals to several mm are present, though grown together and not freestanding. Still, its a very intense color and concentration of this rare tellurite species.
