Semseyite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Andor Semsey
Formula:
Pb9Sb8S21
Colour:
Steel-grey to black
Lustre:
Metallic
Hardness:
Specific Gravity:
6.08
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
For Andor von Semsey (22 December 1833, Kassa, Hungary - 14 August 1923, Budapest, Hungary), a Nobleman and amateur mineralogist. The mineral andorite is also named after him.
Semseyite belongs to a homologous series of lead antimony sulphides. The structure contains sheets of galena, the thickness of this sheet determines the position in the homologous series. Semseyite has the thickest sheet and fülöppite the thinnest.
