Liveingite - Sold

Liveingite is a lead arsenic sulfide. Solly & Jackson (1901) named the mineral in honor of George D. Liveing (1827-1924), professor of chemistry at Cambridge University, England.

Liveingite forms a parallel growth crystal group, 13 by 11 mm, spanning a vug in dolomite rock. Also present in the matrix are tennantite, muscovite, and pyrite. This specimen carries a Naturhistoriches Museum Bern label, which indicates it was collected in 1974.
