About EdgariteHide

Formula:
FeNb3S6
FeNb3+2Nb4+S6
Colour:
Dark grey
Lustre:
Metallic
Hardness:
2 - 2½
Specific Gravity:
4.99 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Name:
Named after Alan D. Edgar (1935–1998), Professor of Petrology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada, in recognition of his contributions to the study of alkaline rocks and synthetic equivalents.
An unusual sulphide mineral that appears to have formed at a very late, or final, stage of metamorphism, after the main event of fenitization, from a highly reduced, subalkaline S-C-H-rich fluid, which may have remobilized Nb as a result of destabilization of oxide minerals (Barkov et al. 2000).

The first mineral showing chalcophile behaviour of Nb. Also the first mineral with two reduced Nb cations (compare niobocarbide).
