Short summary
Luxembourgite, ideally AgCuPbBi4Se8, is a new selenide discovered at Bivels, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The mineral forms tiny fibres deposited on dolomite crystals. Its crystal structure is similar to those of litochlebite and watkinsonite, and can be described as an alternation of two types of anionic layers: a pseudotetragonal layer four atoms thick and a pseudohexagonal layer one atom thick. The species named for the city of Luxembourg, close to its locality of discovery.
