Annivite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Cu6[Cu4(Fe,Zn)2](As,Bi)4S13
A variety of Tennantite

A Bi-rich variety of Tennantite.

Originally described from and named for the Anniviers valley (Val d'Anniviers), Wallis, Switzerland. This description, however, was based on a wrong chemical analysis. The name has also been applied to Bi-rich tetrahedrite from various localities in Argentina (6.3 to 9.2 wt% in La Mejicana) (Brodtkorb, 2002).

A Bi-dominant composition, which probably represents a new species, has been reported by Gołębiowska et al. (2012).
