Abstract

This apparently absolutely new chemical combination
occurs in attached crystal groups in a quartz gangue
containing disseminated pyrites, in the form of somewhat
thin hexagonal plates, which are usually minute in size
(about 5 millemetres in diameter), but occasionally reach
9 mm. dia., and, still more rarely, a larger size.
Macles are not rare, irregularly attached and implanted
on each other, and on the matrix.
