Colusite, a Cu, V, Sn, As sulfide, is isometric, space group P43m, with a = 10.629±003 Å. The structure is a superstructure based upon a sphalerite-like arrangement of atoms, but is not related to structures of the tetrahedrite family in spite of a similar supercell geometry. Four different sets of idealized atomic positions are permitted by the subcellsupercell relationship. Only one array is compatible with the chemical information presently available.
