About Proustite-Pyrargyrite SeriesHide

Series Formula:
Ag3AsS3 to Ag3SbS3
A series between Proustite and Pyrargyrite

While evidence from natural occurrences suggests a miscibility gap between Proustite and Pyrargyrite at lower temperatures, such a gap has never been confirmed, neither in the field nor in the laboratory.
