Name:
In honor of French mineralogist Dr. Bernard Cervelle (born 1940), Professor at the University of Paris.
The Te analogue of aguilarite.

A Cu-rich variety (up to 6 wt.% Cu) has been reported (Helmy, 1999; see also Voudouris et al., 2011, Kubač et al., 2018).

Stoichiometrically identical but optically different phase is known: UM1976-12-S:AgTe. There are many other unnamed Ag-Te-S phases, e.g., 'UM1976-12-S:AgTe' and 'UM2003-17-S:AgTe'.
