This article is about the Tellurium compounds. For the similarly named Star Trek race, see Tellarite.

Tellurite can refer to the mineral composed of tellurium dioxide (TeO2), or to the tellurite ion (TeO32-). Potassium tellurite (K2TeO3)is used together with agar as part of a selective medium for growth of some bacteria (Clauberg medium). It looks very fragile and is flaky in its natural state.
