Soft sulfide grains occurring in rigid rock may be pseudomorphs, although possessing rectilinear, seemingly idiomorphic or excellent crystallographic form.

Grains of ragged outline and of "atoll form" intergrowths may be pseudomorphs even if connecting veinlets of the disunited grains are indiscernible.
