Rathite-IV

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
PbAs2S4
Possibly a separate species.
Unit-cell parameters are close to those of argentoliveingite (triclinic-pseudomonoclinic), but rathite-IV is said to be monoclinic (Ozawa & Nowacki, 1974).

The phase studied by Ozawa & Tachikawa (1996) using TEM seems to be a different phase.
