This Silver telluride specimen is a exceptional find that I made in 2001. It was mined along with other fragments of minerals, no scientific value, and nearly 50 years stored in poor condition. A true miracle, do not show any damage.
Botes area Mines was closed early last century, now is abandoned and unprotected as a geological site.
