Antimony sulphides in the Thuathe meteorite of Lesotho

de Bruiyn, Hendrik; Lombard, Annegret; Schoch, Aylva E.


The Thauthe meteorite that fell in July 2002 contains small grains (< 3 μm) of berthierite and stibnite. These antimony-bearing phases were identified by aid of energy dispersive and wavelength dispersive X-ray spectrometry. This is the first reported occurrence of antimony sulphides in a meteorite.
