Rheniite Mineral Containing Rhenium
Rheniite is exceedingly rare and was first found in active hot fumaroles on the slopes of the Kudriavy Volcano, Kurile Islands, Russia (a remote volcanic chain of islands stretching south west from the tip of Kamchatka). It was the first accredited mineral, in 2004, to contain rhenium, with only one other mineral, tarkianite.
This rheniite mineral specimen from this classic Russian locality has an abundance of rheniite scattered throughout, and is easily visible.
This very attractive, extremely rare specimen arrives with a tag, COA, and perky display case (shown). This is among one of the most sought after rare minerals to add to a serious mineral collection.
The specimen size is: 17mm L X 12mm W X 15mm H
The rheniite is prominently visible, and extremely photogenic.
If you are looking for a low budget but very nice, classic specimen, from this exceedingly remote location, you have found it!
Stands and cube not included.
