R.H. Solly
Formula:
TlPbAsS3
System:
Monoclinic
Name:
The name honors Richard Harrison Solly (4 September 1851, London, England - 5 December 1925, Bournemouth, England), a British autodidact, who carefully described eight new mineral species from Lengenbach between 1901 and 1912. He can be considered the most successful scientist of the first flourishing period of Lengenbach investigations, at the dawn of the twentieth century.
New structure type. Chemically similar to edenharterite, enneasartorite, hendekasartorite, hutchinsonite, and incomsartorite.
