• Arsenopyrite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arsenopyrite Arsenopyrite is an iron arsenic sulfide (FeAsS). It is a hard (Mohs 5.5-6) metallic, opaque, steel grey to silver white mineral with a relatively high specific gravity of 6.1.When dissolved in nitric acid, it releases elemental sulfur.When arsenopyrite is heated, it produces poisonous sulfur and arsenic fumes which can be fatal if inhaled in large quantities.
