Rheniite is an exceedingly rare mineral, as there are only two known valid mineral species containing this element on our planet. It was first found in active hot fumaroles on the slopes of the Kudriavy Volcano, Kurile Archipelago, 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 a great abundance of rheniite scattered throughout, and is easily visible. It is loaded with small rheniite crystal, on volcanic lava. The SECOND photo is a 50X magnification. A polarizer was not used, some sparkle may suggest that some crystals are larger than they are, however there are some nice ones.

This is among one of the most sought after rare minerals to add to a serious mineral collection!

The specimen size is: 28mm L X 23mm W X 17mm D; XRF Included!

If you are looking for a low budget but a great specimen of rheniite from this very remote location, you have found it!
