Increase in Tellurium Price

International market conditions for tellurium are improving. Tellurium is a rare metal used as a raw material for solar batteries and electronic parts.

There is a rumor that tellurium is going to be listed on the Fanya Exchange, a Chinese rare metal exchange market, in the near future.
It seems this rumor has a lot to do with the recent increase in the market price.

After marking a historically high price in 2011, the price had been significantly declining until last year.
