Breithauptite with Nickeline

Breithauptite and nickeline are nickel antimonide and nickel arsenide, respectively. The two species have the same crystal structure; the large difference of the atomic radii for arsenic and antimony atoms cause these minerals to crystallize separately rather than form a mineral of intermediate composition. Nickeline is copper-red with breithauptite is rose-colored in this sample.

From the collection of E.R. Laskowski (1949-2020). Laskowski acquired this specimen from in 2010; labels from Laskowski and another dealer accompany the specimen.
