Unnamed (Cu-Zn-In Sulphide)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
CuZn2InS4
Member of:
"The end-member of the kësterite-sakuraiite series" (Kieft & Damman, 1990). Chemically similar to 'UM1985-23-S:CuFeInZn'.

A similar phase (same stoichiometry) but possibly with the sphalerite-type structure, is reported by Ohta (1989) and Semenyak et al. (1994).
