Structural stability of minerals with the pyrite, marcasite, arsenopyrite and löllingite structures: M38-8/78E-PDF

"The disulphides, diarsenides and sulpharsenides of iron, cobalt and nickel crystallize in structures characterized by "dumb-bells" of closely bound anion pairs (S-S or As-S), tetrahedral coordination of three cations and one anion around each anion, and octahedral coordination of six anions around each cation. However, there are significant differences between the various structures involved, and it is the purpose of this paper to investigate the relationship between composition and structure of these minerals, and to attempt to arrive at an explanation for this relationship"--Introd., p. [311].
