About AguilariteHide

Bright lead-gray on fresh surfaces
Specific Gravity:
7.40 - 7.53
Crystal System:
Member of:
Named after Señor P. Aguilar, Superintendent of the San Carlos Mine, Mexico, the type locality.
Isostructural with:
There appear to be two solid solution series in the system: a monoclinic ‘acanthite-like’ series (from Ag2S-Ag2S0.4Se0.6), and an orthorhombic ‘naumannite-like’ series (from Ag2S0.3Se0.7-Ag2Se) (Bindi & Pingitore, 2013; Seryotkin et al., 2015).

The Se analogue of cervelleite.

Compare 'UM1979-11-S:AgAsAuSe', 'UM1979-12-S:AgAsAuSe', and 'UM1979-13-S:AgAsAuSe'.
