About PyrostilpniteHide

Red, brownish red orange-red, fire red
Specific Gravity:
Crystal System:
Originally described as Feuerblende (Feuer = fire, Blende from blenden = to blind, for the adamantine luster), later translated into Pyrostilpnite (from Greek pyr = fire, stilpnos = bright or shining).
Dimorph of:
Proustite Group.
The monoclinic dimorph of Pyrargyrite.

Classification of PyrostilpniteHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

2 : SULFIDES and SULFOSALTS (sulfides, selenides, tellurides; arsenides, antimonides, bismuthides; sulfarsenites, sulfantimonites, sulfbismuthites, etc.)
G : Sulfarsenites, sulfantimonites, sulfbismuthites
A : Neso-sulfarsenites, etc. without additional S

4 : ø = 3

5 : Sulphosalts - Sulpharsenites and Sulphobismuthites (those containing Sn, Ge,or V are in Section 6)
2 : Sulpharsenites etc. of Ag

Crystallography of PyrostilpniteHide

Crystal System:
Class (H-M):
2/m - Prismatic
Space Group:
Cell Parameters:
a = 6.84 Å, b = 15.84 Å, c = 6.24 Å
β = 117.15°
a:b:c = 0.432 : 1 : 0.394
