Rheniite Mineral Containing Rhenium
Rheniite Mineral Containing the Element Rhenium
Rheniite was first found in active hot fumaroles on the slopes of the Kudriavy Volcano, Kurile Islands, Russia. It was the first accredited mineral, in 2004, to contain rhenium, with only one other mineral, tarkianite, being the other.
This rheniite mineral specimen is this Russian classic locality and the speckled rheniite scattered throughout it is easily visible.
This very attractive, extremely rare specimen comes with a tag, COA, and perky display case. This is among one of the most sought after rare minerals to add to a serious mineral collection.
The specimen size is: 24mm L X 20mm W X 11mm D
The rheniite is prominently visible, and extremely photogenic.
If you are looking for a low budget but very nice, classic specimen, from an exceedingly remote location, you have found it!
This specimen would be an important addition to any serious mineral collection.
