Description

This is really old material - the locality was productive from 1822 to 1925; ref. Lapis magazine 7/8 1997). The specimen is a cluster consisting of countless tiny crystals, developed as floater and at a weight of 5,47 gramm. It is nicely presented under glass un a wooden base. Maybe it would pay off to get an analyse - based on the Lapis article and the information at the back-side of the label it could be Isoferreoplatinum.  For sure a great rarity from a historic locality and in excellent condition. Ok - no Tellurium, but if you like elements, this one is very fine.
