About SteverustiteHide

Steve Rust
Formula:
Pb2+5(OH)5[Cu+(S6+O3S2-)3](H2O)2
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
For British collector Steve Rust
A very rare case of a naturally formed thiosulphate. Chemically related to sidpietersite. Other Pb-bearing thiosulphate minerals are fassinaite and Unnamed (Pb Thiosulphate). You can also compare 'UM1995-35-SO:FePb'.

Visually similar to Unnamed (Pb Silicate).
