Tennantite
Formula: Cu6[Cu4(Fe,Zn)2]As4S13
Description: Braithwaite (1988): "A sample of the grey sulphide mineral was analysed by Ian Brough of the Metallurgy Department, UMIST and the University of Manchester, using a Philips SEM 505 scanning electron microscope fitted with an EDAX 9100/60 energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer, and using a standardless analysis procedure. The average of four analyses with good reproducibility gave a composition: Cu 35.2; Zn 5.3; Fe 1.3; As 9.8; Sb 2.9; S 45.6 atom %, corresponding to a formula (Cu0.84Zn0.13Fe0.03)12(As0.77Sb0.23)3.6S13.1; the mineral is, therefore, a zincian tennantite."

Tetrahedrite
Formula: Cu6[Cu4(Fe,Zn)2]Sb4S13
Description: Braithwaite (1988): "Goodchild (1881-2) mentions tetrahedrite from 'east of Harcla, Kirkby Stephen', probably meaning east of Hartley Birkett, which would fit Higher Longrigg mine."
