Formula:
(Cu,Ga,Fe,In,Zn)S
Colour:
Dark gray
Lustre:
Metallic
Crystal System:
Isometric
Name:
Named in honour of Dr. Shunso Ishihara (b. 10 March 1934), Emeritus Advisor of AIST (Advanced Industrial Science and Technology), Tsukuba, Japan. He first identified the magnetite- and ilmenite-series of granitic rocks, and made relationships between the degree of oxidation of a granite magma and the ore mineralization.
Sphalerite structure type.

Compare also sakuraiite.
