Home > Laskowski Ⅸ – October 7 > MS1975 Telluronevskite


Telluronevskite is a combination selenide and telluride of bismuth; it is a structural derivative of tetradymite (Cook et al., 2007). The mineral name telluronevskite denotes its tellurium content and chemical similarity to nevskite (Řídkošil et al., 2001). The root name nevskite recalls its discovery in the Nevskoye deposit, Russia (Nechelyustov et al., 1984).

Telluronevskite forms platy metallic crystals to 2 mm in altered quartzite matrix consisting of quartz, opal, and kaolinite. This sample is from the type locality. From the collection of E.R. Laskowski (1949-2020), a mining engineer who retired to Tucson, Arizona.
