About AndoriteHide

Andor Semsey
Dark grey.
Specific Gravity:
5.33 - 5.37
Crystal System:
Named for Andor von Semsey (22 December 1833, Košice, Slovakia - 14 August 1923, Budapest, Hungary), Hungarian mineral collector. The mineral semseyite was also named after him. Donnay and Donnay (1954) summarize the complex early history of the andorite minerals. They found that andorite crystals were actually polycrystals consisting of two species and introduced the names andorite VI and andorite IV for those species.
Ramdohrite-Lillianite Group.
The name andorite was later split up into two distinct species - Andorite IV (= andorite s.s.) and Andorite VI.

Classification of AndoriteHide


2 : Sulphides
E : Sulphosalts (S : As,Sb,Bi = x), Sulphosalts with predominant Fe and Cu and x = 2.0
23 : Uchucchacuaite - Roshchinite series
Dana 7th ed.:

5 : Sulphosalts - Sulpharsenites and Sulphobismuthites (those containing Sn, Ge,or V are in Section 6)
7 : Sulpharsenites etc. of Pb and other metals
