Enneasartorite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Tl6Pb32As70S140
Colour:
Grey
Lustre:
Metallic
Hardness:
3 - 3½
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Member of:
Sartorite homologous series.
Physical and optical properties similar to heptasartorite and hendekasartorite. Chemical analysis and/or single-crystal X-ray diffraction is needed to distinguish them.
Enneasartorite corresponds to the "sartorite" described by Berlepsch et al. (2003).
