GeneralMolybdenite, Cosalite association info please.

29th Jan 2020 10:36 UTCGreg Dainty

I have attached a couple of pics of a specimen of molybdenite and cosalite from Kingsgate mine, NSW, Australia. The cosalite (identified by XRD)  is at the bottom right of the molydbenite, not quite as bright as the molybdenite. The cosalite sits basically on the moly. My question is, has anybody ever seen cosalite directly associated with molybdenite before? I know it can be found in an environment with molybdenite, but this is the first time I have seen them both together. Thanks in advance

This pic shows a close up of the cosalite and molydbenite, the cosalite covers an area of about 6 square centimeters.
