The crystal chemistry of iron-nickel thiospinels.

D. J. Vaughan, J. R. Craig

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The crystal chemistry and mineralogical properties of the thiospinels of the series polydymite (Ni3S4)-violarite (FeNi2S4)-greigite (Fe3S4) have been studied using synthetic and natural samples and emphasizing the intermediate compositions ("violarites', (Fe,Ni)3S4).-J.A.Z.
