Effect of FeS on the unit cell edge of sphalerite, a revision

July 30, 2020

Redeterminations of the relation between the composition and unit-cell size of Fe-bearing sphalerites, necessitated because of partial oxidation of the FeS sample used in earlier measurements, are presented. It is noted that the Fe-ZnS solvus curve may also require revision and should be used with caution, particularly for temperature determinations in the higher ranges.
