Pilsenite from
Jinqingding Au deposit, Rushan ore field, Rushan Co., Weihai, Jiaodong Peninsula (Jiaodong Gold Province), Shandong, China

Locality type:Deposit
Comments:Reports of pilsenite from this locality are possibly the result of a translation error. The mineral is mentioned as occurring here in the English abstract of the paper by Liu et al. (2010), but the respective mineral name in the Chinese abstract is 碲铋矿 (tellurobismuthite), not 叶碲铋矿 (pilsenite). Pilsenite is nowhere mentioned in the Chinese text, and the analytical data given for 碲铋矿 indicate that the name indeed refers to tellurobismuthite and not to pilsenite. The only reason for listing pilsenite as questionable and not as erroneously reported is an erlier report by Liu and Lu (2006), which cannot now be validated because the full text is presently not available to us.
