Andorite IV

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Andor Semsey
Formula:
Pb18Ag15Sb47S96
Colour:
grey
Lustre:
Metallic
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Donnay and Donnay (1954) summarize the complex early history of the andorite minerals. They introduced the name andorite VI to distinguish the species from andorite IV. The two species usually form together, forming polycrystals. The root name is in honor of Andor von Semsey (22 December 1833, Košice, Slovakia - 14 August 1923, Budapest, Hungary), mineral collector. The mineral semseyite was also named after him.
Ramdohrite-Lillianite Group.
Compare also arsenquatrandorite.
