The cobaltiferous pyrite series

The cobaltiferous pyrite series
American Mineralogist (October 1968) 53 (1-2): 293-295


Natural samples of cobaltiferous pyrite were analyzed for their iron and cobalt content. Compositions from nearly pure iron disulfide (pyrite) to greater than 75 wt. percent cobalt disulfide (cattierite) were found. Experimental results show a solvus in the binary below 700 degrees C, but natural samples do not reflect this observation. The X-ray spacing, d(511), is shown to be linear with composition.
