• Argentite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentite Argentite belongs to the galena group. The name "argentite" sometimes also refers to pseudomorphs of argentite: specimens of acanthite which still display some of the outward signs of the cubic crystal form, even though their actual crystal structure is monoclinic due to the lower temperature.

  • Argentite: Mineral information, data and localities.

    www.mindat.org/min-326.html The name 'argentite' refers to the high-temperature form of silver sulphide, only stable over 177°C. Below this temperature, any samples of 'argentite' convert to acanthite. The name argentite is therefore used (confusingly) by some to describe pseudo-cubic pseudomorphs of silver sulphide (acanthite) where the original crystal form of the high-temperature cubic argentite has remained.

    www.minerals.net/mineral/acanthite.aspx Acanthite is composed mostly of silver, and is its most important ore.. Acanthite and Argentite are usually grouped together in mineral guides as one mineral. However, they are scientifically recognized as two unique minerals, even though they are composed of the same substance.
  • Acanthite: Mineral information, data and localities.

    www.mindat.org/min-10.html Acanthite is the low-temperature modification of silver sulphide. All natural silver sulphide specimens at room temperature are acanthite. The structure of Argentite, the high-temperature cubic (isometric) form cannot be quenched.At atmospheric pressure, pure argentite is stable above 177°C and acanthite is stable below 177°C.

  • ACANTHITE/ARGENTITE (Silver Sulfide) - Amethyst Galleries

    www.galleries.com/Acanthite Argentite has an isometric structure and is only stable at temperatures above 173 degrees Celsius and if cooling from a melt, will form isometric crystals such as cubes, octahedrons and dodecahedrons. Upon cooling to below 173 degrees Celsius, argentite transforms from its isometric structure to the monoclinic structure of acanthite.
  • Acanthite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acanthite Acanthite is a form of silver sulfide with the chemical formula Ag 2 S. It crystallizes in the monoclinic system and is the stable form of silver sulfide below 173 °C (343 °F). Argentite is the stable form above that temperature. As argentite cools below that temperature its cubic form is distorted to the monoclinic form of acanthite.
