About OwyheeiteHide

Seal of Owyhee County, Idaho, USA
Ag3+xPb10-2xSb11+xS28, -0.13 < x > +0.20
Light steel-gray to silver-white, tarnishes yellow
Specific Gravity:
Crystal System:
Named for Owyhee County, Idaho, USA, which includes the type locality.
Belongs to a broad family of rod-based sulphosalt structures with the chess-board arrangement of the rods.

Compare sterryite, parasterryite, meerschautite, 'UM1979-14-S:AgPbSb'.

Compositionally related to zoubekite.

Classification of OwyheeiteHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

2 : SULFIDES and SULFOSALTS (sulfides, selenides, tellurides; arsenides, antimonides, bismuthides; sulfarsenites, sulfantimonites, sulfbismuthites, etc.)
H : Sulfosalts of SnS archetype
C : With only Pb

5 : 2.5 < ø < 3

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