Bismuthinite from
Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China

Classification
Species:Bismuthinite
Comments:Although bismuthinite has been reported in older references by Chinese authors, alleged silvery fibrous and acicular "bismuthinites" from here usually turn out to be stibnite on analysis (Jensen, 2009). Antimonian bismuthinite was found by Bart Cannon Microprobe Company on a Saul Krotki specimen.
Confirmation
Validity:Believed Valid
