The term argyrodite now refers to an entire class of compounds that have a specific arrangement of atoms and type of structure.
However, there are no significant argyrodite deposits.
Winkler discovered germanium in the mineral argyrodite.
Germanium was first discovered and isolated from a specimen of the mineral argyrodite.
The individual components of argyrodite can be replaced by a number of other atoms without altering the typical structure of the mineral.
The team produced a version of the mineral in which silver is replaced by lithium, germanium by phosphorus, and some of the sulphur atoms by halides (chloride, bromide or iodide), resulting in argyrodite-like structures.
A team led by Hans-Joerg Deiseroth in Siegen, Germany, reported in the journal Angewandte Chemie that the characterisation of the most conductive representative of the man-made argyrodite minerals was made of lithium, phosphorus, sulphur and bromine atoms.
