Benjaminite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Ag3Bi7S12
Ag may be replaced by minor Cu and Bi by minor Pb.
Colour:
Grey; tarnishes dull or yellow to copper-red
Lustre:
Metallic
Hardness:
Specific Gravity:
6.34
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
For Marcus Benjamin (1857-1932), American chemist, engineer, and editor of the U.S. National Museum (Smithsonian Institute).
Cu-rich and Cu-poor varieties are described by Makovicky et al. (2010).

Difficult to distinguish from pavonite; single-crystal XRD methods are necessary (Harris & Chen, 1975).
