Idaite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Cu5FeS6
Very close to Cu5.5FeS6.5 according to Sugaki et al. (1975).
System:
Hexagonal
Hardness:
2½ - 3½
Name:
Named for the type locality, the Ida mine in Namibia.
Stannite Group.

A lamellar decomposition product of bornite, commonly associated with fine
spindles of chalcopyrite; apparently of secondary origin, a first product of enrichment.

May be confused with nukundamite.
Chemically related to bornite.
