Silver minerals from Rudabánya (N-Hungary)

Numerous silver minerals were found recently in the primary and in the secondary oxidation zone of the hydrothermal-metasomatic iron ore deposit at RudabSnya, Northern-Hungary. In the baritized zone bound to the carbonatic ore - primary in the galena-rich orebodies - silver, acanthite, proustite, py...

Description
Summary:Numerous silver minerals were found recently in the primary and in the secondary oxidation zone of the hydrothermal-metasomatic iron ore deposit at RudabSnya, Northern-Hungary. In the baritized zone bound to the carbonatic ore - primary in the galena-rich orebodies - silver, acanthite, proustite, pyrargyrite and xanthoconite? were found. The limonitic and siliceous limonitic ores of the oxidation zone contains acanthite, moschellandsbergite, bromargyrite, chlorargyrite and iodargyrite. These minerals are the resultant products of the recrystallization of the silver-bearing phases of the baritized zone, i.e. of secondary origin. This paper is on the description of the minerals referred to above.
