Name:
For Dr. Bela Fülöpp, (1863-1938) Hungarian lawyer, statesman and mineral collector.
Fülöppite is a rare mineral in a homologous series with heteromorphite, plagionite and semseyite. Their structures differ by the thickness of a galena sheet in the structure. Fülöppite has the thinnest such sheet.

May be confused with plagionite.


Classification of Fülöppite

Valid - first described prior to 1959 (pre-IMA) - "Grandfathered"
2.HC.10a

2 : SULFIDES and SULFOSALTS (sulfides, selenides, tellurides; arsenides, antimonides, bismuthides; sulfarsenites, sulfantimonites, sulfbismuthites, etc.)
H : Sulfosalts of SnS archetype
C : With only Pb
3.6.20.1

3 : SULFOSALTS
6 : 2 < ø < 2.49
5.6.7

5 : Sulphosalts - Sulpharsenites and Sulphobismuthites (those containing Sn, Ge,or V are in Section 6)
6 : Sulpharsenites etc. of Pb alone
