• Tetrahedrite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrahedrite Tetrahedrite is a copper antimony sulfosalt mineral with formula: (Cu,Fe) 12 Sb 4 S 13.It is the antimony endmember of the continuous solid solution series with arsenic-bearing tennantite.Pure endmembers of the series are seldom if ever seen in nature. Of the two, the antimony rich phase is more common.

  • DF2014:Tetrahedrite - Dwarf Fortress Wiki

    dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Tetrahedrite Tetrahedrite is an incredibly common ore of both copper and silver. Smelting tetrahedrite will produce 4 copper bars and 0-4 silver bars (with a 20% chance of each silver bar being produced). On average, each nugget of tetrahedrite will produce less than one bar of silver when smelted. Tetrahedrite can also be used in alloy reactions requiring either a copper-bearing ore or a silver-bearing ...
