Abstract

The principal component metals of the sulfides and the similarities of chemical bonding and packing geometry of both simple and complex sulfides and sulfo salts are discussed. While individual sulfides and sulfo salts may differ in chemical composition, there is sufficient structural resemblance to permit the establishment of a single classification. An attempt has been made to relate the descriptive mineralogy (the physical and chemical properties) to the new classification and bonding structure.
