Stibiconite after Stibnite


Stibiconite is an antimony oxide with the pyrochlore crystal structure. In a massive nomenclature change of such minerals, the species stibiconite was discredited (Atencio et al., 2010). Later reconsideration that material once called stibiconite represents a distinct mineral species, but its proper name in teh new nomenclature ssytem requires additional work (Christy & Atencio, 2013). This is a sharp pseudomorph of stibiconite after a prismatic stibnite crystal. Quite sharp for one of these.
