About PatróniteHide

Lead-gray on fresh surface, gray-black on exposed surface
Crystal System:
Named in honor of Antenor Rizo-Patrona (1866–1948) metallurgist of the Huaraucaca smelter, who discovered the ore.
Chemically similar to eliopoulosite.

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

2 : SULFIDES and SULFOSALTS (sulfides, selenides, tellurides; arsenides, antimonides, bismuthides; sulfarsenites, sulfantimonites, sulfbismuthites, etc.)
E : Metal Sulfides, M: S <= 1:2
C : M:S = 1:>2

16 : Miscellaneous

3 : Sulphides, Selenides, Tellurides, Arsenides and Bismuthides (except the arsenides, antimonides and bismuthides of Cu, Ag and Au, which are included in Section 1)
