Calaverite Gold Telluride

Calaverite, or Gold Telluride, is an uncommon telluride of gold, a metallic mineral. It was first discovered in Calaveras County in 1861, and named for the county in 1868. The mineral often has a metallic luster, and its color may range from a silvery white to a brassy yellow. It looks super in jewelry designs or keep as a specimen.

Calaverite (Gold Telluride)

Calaverite is one of the few minerals that is an ore of gold, besides native gold itself. It is the most common gold bearing mineral besides native gold. The element gold is typically either found as native gold (in its elemental state), as an alloy with other metals such as silver and copper and as trace amounts in a few minerals.
