Formula:
Pb8As10Sb6S32
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Member of:
Name:
Named in honor of Dr Jaroslav Hyršl, mineralogist and gemmologist, previously professor at Karlovy University (Charles University) in Prague, author of the much consulted encyclopedia titled "Minerals and their Localities", plus innumerable research and popular articles on mineral and gem occurences, and specialist in the mineral and gem deposits of Peru and Bolivia.
Compositionally hyršlite lies between guettardite and twinnite on the one hand, and hendekasartorite on the other hand.
