This is a sort of nodule composed, mostly of native tellurium that has tiny quartz crystals suspended through it. The tellurium is very lustrous on the broken surfaces with a bright metallic colour. There are also tellurite minerals in porous spaces of the quartz but not good crystals. Nice example of native tellurium!
