  • Abstract The present paper reports changes to the existing nomenclature for minerals belonging to the pearceite-polybasite group. Thirty-one samples of minerals in this group from different localities, with variable chemical composition, and showing the 111, 221, and 222 unit-cell types, were studied by means of X-ray single-crystal diffraction and electron microprobe. The unit-cell parameters were modeled using a multiple regression method as a function of the Ag, Sb, and Se contents. The… CONTINUE READING
