Rodalquilarite on Alunite
Wendy pit, Tambo Mine, El Indio deposit, Coquimbo Province, Chile
Miniature, 3.9 x 2.7 x 2.5 cm
A very rich specimen with closely-grown, lathe-like crystals of this rare tellurite to 5 mm in size, filling a vein in alunite, upon limestone matrix. A very rich specimen for the species and a nice display-worthy miniature, too.
