Asahiko Sugaki
Formula:
Cu(Fe,Ni)8S8
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Name:
Named for Dr. Asahiko Sugaki (苣木浅彦) (23 February 1923, Saga Prefecture, Japan - 22 April 2010), professor of Tohoku University, specialist in ore deposits, especially experimental studies on sulphide phase equilibria.
Cu analogue of Argentopentlandite. Compositionally similar to samaniite.

Compare, e.g., 'UM1988-19-S:CuFeNiPdRu'.
